Game Of Thrones star Hafthor Bjornsson has been crowned Europe's Strongest Man after winning the annual contest in England last week (ends17Aug14).

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 (181.4-kilogram) 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!"
