Matthias Schlitte has been nicknamed ‘Hellboy’ and ‘Popeye’, and there’s no need for an explanation why.
Matthias was born with a rare genetic defect that made his right arm 33% bigger than is left.
While his big arm caused him problems as a kid, he used it later in life to become an arm wrestling wrld champion.
His mum saw an advert for an arm wrestling competition when he was 16, and he went along to compete. Initially, he got laughed at, being a skinny 16 year old lad looking out of his depth at a competition in a bar.
But then he started beating everybody.
‘Hell Boy’ is now a 14 time world champion, and has become a star around the world, making TV appearances and appearing in adverts.
I can only imagine that he has heard every joke going. Asking if he’s eaten his spinach, does he swim in circles, how far away is his left arm…
Yes. I intentionally left out a wanking joke.
I’m not gonna stoop so low. Plus, why would I want to piss off this guy?!
Fair play, Matthias.
