“Game of Thrones” star Hafthor Bjornsson has been crowned Europe’s Strongest Man after winning the annual contest in England last week.
The strongman-turned-actor, who plays Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane in the hit fantasy series, iced out the competition in Leeds after performing a series of strength-testing challenges.
The 400-pound Iceland native was the only participant to complete the atlas stone challenge, in which one must lift a heavy concrete sphere onto a large barrel.
After he completed the task, Bjornsson ripped off his shirt and exclaimed, “I am the future of strength. I am the King of the Stones!”
