A hilarious picture has emerged which shows two of the strongest men on the planet seated together on a plane, both of whom look as if they could well give the plane a running push if needed.

Strongman Eddie Hall – who earned the title of World’s Strongest Man in 2017 – shared the photograph on Instagram showing himself sat beside four-time World’s Strongest Man Brian Shaw.



Squashed beside each other on a flight from London to Scotland, the two giants made for an unforgettable sight; their huge, powerful physiques barely contained within the modest economy class plane seats.

The passengers around them looked like a bunch of nervous little hamsters compared with these human Titans, whose mountainous bodies just don’t appear in any way compatible with air travel.



Sharing the photograph on Instagram, Eddie – who is also known as ‘The Beast’ – joked:

The check-in ladies sat me and @shawstrength right next to each other on the plane from London to Scotland and no-one on the plane would swap seats…. Would you swap seats with one of us???….

I wouldn’t either #FuckMyLife Big Love The Beast

Fans were deeply amused by the sight of the two strongmen squished in next to each other, with some wondering whether or not the plane ended up being tilted on one side.

One commenter teased:


Shouldn’t you guys be on opposite aisles? To balance the plane??

Meanwhile, MMA fighter and five-time World’s Strongest Man, Mariusz Pudzianowski, sympathized with his fellow strongmen, commenting:

Bro u have no idea how many times that happens and people don’t give a F!!! But if u bring a dog on the plane they will do cartwheels to accommodate!!!! #Sizest #WheresTheLove

It would appear this isn’t the first time these large lads have encountered difficulties when travelling by plane. In January of this year, Brian shared a funny pic of him sat beside a woman of a plane who looked like she could fit in the palm of his hand.

Brian captioned the photograph:

I seem to fit perfectly in this seat

Thankfully this young lady next to me is a good sport…and was in for a fun picture! #bigmaninasmallplane



Somebody get these big guys an aisle each all to themselves next time!
