Hafthor Bjornsson makes Tyson Fury's team look tiny as Game of Thrones star meets up with John Fury and Co before fight

TEAM Tyson Fury were made to look tiny after meeting up with Hafthor 'The Mountain' Bjornsson.

The Icelandic strongman posed with Tyson's dad John, boxers Joseph Parker and Derek Chisora, and Ricky Hatton ahead of the Gypsy King's world title defence against Dillian Whyte.

Bjornsson uploaded the photo to his Instagram account, writing: "Hell of a day/night ahead. #FuryvsWhyte."

He stands at 6ft 9in – the same height as WBC heavyweight king Tyson.

But the Game of Thrones star stands a lot taller than Chisora, Parker, big John and 5ft 7in Hatton.

And while Bjornsson did not meet Tyson this time – he has bumped into the boxing champ before.

'Thor' visited Fury at one of his evening with tour nights.

Fury, 33, is one of the biggest heavyweights in the world, weighing in 19st 7lb for his last fight, a trilogy win over Deontay Wilder.

But that is nothing on the 23STONE Bjornsson weighs, which is only after a dramatic nine-stone body transformation.

Bjornsson, 33, beat fight rival Eddie Hall, who he called out in May 2020 after he broke the Brit's 501kg deadlift record.

Bjornsson also had three tune-up exhibition bouts in preparation for the grudge match with Hal.

He even claimed he would one day fight his boxing idol, even if he has no hope of winning.

Bjornsson told Muscle and Health: “I know I’d get my ass beaten against Tyson Fury today, but if I was offered that opportunity, I would not turn it down.

“The opportunity to fight someone that great would be an honour for me and I just couldn’t say no to that.
