Strongman and bodybuilding champion, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is best known for playing a titular role in Game of Thrones. On 31st January 2015, he beat a 1000-year-old record made by Orm Storolfsson at the World’s Strongest Viking Competition in Norway. Hafþór carried a 33 ft long 1,430lbs log for five steps. This proves his strength and mettle already.

Winning the strongest man in the world is not a joke and needs a lot of dedication and perseverance for the bodybuilder.

He needed surgery and was recovering. Recently, the man got back up and uploaded a surprising video on Instagram that surprised his fans.
