Game of Thrones star turned boxer Hafthor Bjornsson looks unrecognisable without trademark beard | The Sun

GAME OF THRONES star Hafthor Bjornsson looks completely unrecognisable without his trademark beard.

The 2018 World's Strongest Man, also known as Thor, has had the bushy facial hair ever since coming into the public eye more than a decade ago.

But now he has shared an image of him from back in the day which shows him donning a clean look.

He shared the clip of him now and photo of him then, along with the caption: "How I look with beard vs without beard".

Reacting to the Icelandic strongman's post on social media, one person hilariously said: "I really respect you sir , but please don't shave 🙏".

Another added: "I was not ready 😆".

And a third said: "European Dana White 😂".

Bjornsson recently swapped the world of strongman for a short stint in boxing.

And after three warm-up bouts, he faced rival Eddie Hall, 35, in March of last year in what was billed The Heaviest Boxing Match in History.

Bjornsson, 34, won on points in Dubai and was in talks for an exhibition with heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, 34.

But after negotiations collapsed, Thor hung up his gloves and retired from boxing.

He said: "I'll admit there was a time when there was talks between Tyson Fury and I, his team and my team, there was build-up but that never went through.

"Now I've made a hard decision and the reason why it took me so long to make this video was because this is actually a very difficult thing to talk about.

"I've made a decision to move on from boxing, to not compete in boxing again, to say goodbye to boxing and just not fight again.

"I had a good run, I did it for two-and-a-half years. It was nice to do so, because when I first started I had a lot of people not believing in me."
