Game of Thrones' the Mountain is formidable in real life too. Variety reports, that the actor, Hafthor Bjornsson, who played Ser Gregor Clegane, just set a deadlift world record.

On Saturday, Bjornsson livestreamed the historic occasion when he lifted 1,104 pounds at Thor’s Power Gym in Iceland. With this feat, the actor broke the previous deadlifting record set by Eddie Hall in 2016 for lifting 1,102 pounds.

Bjornsson, who is 6 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 452 pounds, shared the moment with his followers, writing, "I have no words. What an amazing day, one I will remember for the rest of my life. I said I was coming for it and once I set my mind on something I’m a dog with a bone."

The Mountain was played by two actors, Conan Stevens and Ian Whyte, in early seasons of “Game of Thrones,” then Bjornsson took over the role in season 4 until the finale.
