The actor who plays Ser Gregor Clegane on Game of Thrones was crowned the strongest man in world on Sunday.
Icelandic bodybuilder Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, known best for his portrayal of the appropriately nicknamed "The Mountain" on the hit HBO series, won the World’s Strongest Man competition in the Philippines. The two-day event included several tests of strength including a bus pull and a keg toss. It's the first time he's won the competition. He finished second in 2017 and 2016. (EW)
