Ed Sheeran scales ‘The Mountain’

Ed Sheeran and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson

Ed Sheeran is a man of many talents.

As well as being a multi million selling singer songwriter, the star has also turned his hand to acting and appeared in the movie Yesterday and the hit HBO series Game of Thrones.

A recent video from one of his fellow Game of Thrones actors shows another of Ed’s hidden talents – being a somewhat unconventional ‘gym buddy’.

Ed Sheeran and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson

World’s strongest man Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who played the Mountain in the show, has released a video of him working out with Sheeran – literally.

Björnsson’s video starts with the pair in a room with a few other people sat at tables.

Björnsson then effortlessly picks Sheeran up and lifts him up to his shoulder height. A quick readjustment and then Björnsson stretches out his arms and lifts the singer over his head, much to the delight of the onlookers in the room.

Björnsson said: “Luckily I didn’t drop him… He has to work tonight!”

Take a look at the video below.
