Game of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson shows off vein-popping legs and bulging calf muscles ahead of Eddie Hall fight

HAFTHOR BJORNSSON looks to be in the shape of his life ahead of his grudge match with Eddie Hall.

The Game of Thrones star is set to take on his fellow strongman in a boxing match in September.

Bjornsson has been hard at work in the gym improving his striking and shedding some of his immense muscle mass in preparation for the bout.

And all his hard training has left his thighs bursting at the seems with huge veins.

Bjornsson – who played The Mountain in GOT – showed off his immense conditioning on a recent Instagram story.

Alongside a video of his hulking muscles, the Icelandic giant wrote: "Getting leaner and meaner every day."

A date for Bjornsson's clash with his old pal Hall has yet to be finalised.

The pair, 32 and 33 respectively, used to be close until Bjornsson accused Hall of cheating in the Viking Press portion of the 2017 World's Strongest Man competition.


Hall felt stabbed in the back, recently saying: "This is what people don’t sort of get.

“We used to be good friends. He’s been round my house and we’ve had parties. We’ve travelled around the world together.

“But what happened at World’s Strongest Man 2017 just threw all that friendship out the window.

“It was a big dagger in the back.

“That’s irreparable, three or four years with a cloud over my World’s Strongest Man win.

“What’s that cost me in terms of my career? He just doesn’t care.

"I still haven’t had an apology from him, he’s not denying it.

“He keeps saying he was robbed, hard done to.

"At the end of the day, if he’s got solid evidence bring it up. He’s full of c***.

“Thor is not my friend. He was and I can safely say, even with an apology, I don’t want to break bread with this man.”
