Game of Thrones star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has shown off his incredible body after shedding almost eight stone.

The 32-year-old actor, who starred as Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane on the hit HBO fantasy show, has been thrilling his fans with his fitness journey on social media.

And in his latest snaps, he sent his 3.4million followers wild as he stripped down to a pair of teeny shorts to show off his rippling abs.

The tattooed star wore just a pair of black shorts, tucked high up on his thighs, and a pair of bright red trainers for the shoot.

With ink covering his legs, arm and pecs, the star looked super ripped as he posed in the gym.

It comes after he shed a whopping 7st 8lbs in preparation for his first boxing match.

He wrote alongside the post: "From 205kg (32st 3lbs) to 155kg (24st 4lbs). Swipe to see the difference."

In the before pic, Hafþór could be seen in front of a live audience wearing a pair of skin-tight blue shorts, his belly on proud display.

Another fan penned: "Looking damn handsome bro."

"Phenomenal!" someone else congratulated.

And a third fan wrote: "From mountain to rock," with a row of fire emojis.

The star also shared a clip of a typical "day in his life", showing him taking various supplements as he began training at the gym in an ad for vitamin company Transparent Labs.

He has recently made the transition from being a strongman to taking up boxing – so the reason for the change in his fitness routine is apparent.

The star also recently welcomed a son Stormur Magni with his wife Kelsey Henson, writing in September last year: "After an extremely hard two hours and 19 mins of pushing our healthy, strong, beautiful boy arrived."

His wife Kelsey took to her own social media page to say: "Our beautiful baby boy made his grand entrance into the world at 11:19 AM on September 26, 2020 after a short and intense six hours.

"The birth was the most powerful, life-changing, empowering thing I’ve ever done in my entire life. We are all doing well and settling in at home as three!"

Hafþór also has a daughter, Theresa, from a previous relationship.
