Ed Sheeran gets power lifted

Game of Thrones actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who played Ser Gregor Clegane (a.k.a.The Mountain) on the Emmy-winning HBO series, met up with Ed Sheeran over the weekend and showed off his impressive strength.

Sheeran caught up with his old castmate when he played a pair of shows at Laugardalsvöllur stadium in Iceland.

In a short video posted on Instagram, Sheeran is hanging with Björnsson, who won the 2018 World’s Strongest Man competition, champ grabs the singer by the waist and hauls him up over his head and then presses him up to the ceiling.  

“He asked for it. Luckily I didn’t drop him,” Björnsson captioned the clip. “He has to work tonight!!” The lift drew cheers and clapping from the crowd in the room as Sheeran – who had a cameo as a singing Lanister soldier in season seven of the iconic HBO series – laughs and gives the big guy a hug.
