Even for those with decidedly normal physiques, the plane cabin is a small space. Spare a thought, however, for Eddie Hall and Brian ‘The Beast’ Shaw, two champion strongmen who found themselves seated – or rather uncomfortably crammed – next to each other on a recent flight from London to Scotland.
The tight confines of a plane cabin can be tough to negotiate for those with normal physiques, let alone for the exceptionally musclebound. So when a couple of former World’s Strongest Man champions were seated next to each other on a recent Scotland-bound journey from London, things became even tighter, as Metro.co.uk reports.
Eddie Hall, who took the title for 2017, found himself sitting immediately next to Brian ‘The Beast’ Shaw, who was crowned World’s Strongest Man in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016. A photo posted by Hall on Instagram shows the two men crammed into their seats on the flight operated by an unnamed budget carrier.

Commenting on his post, he wrote, “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 want to swap seats. Would you swap seats with one of us? I wouldn’t either.”
He also posted another picture of Shaw sitting next to another passenger. Despite the new seatmate, the conditions were similarly cramped. Offering a tongue-in-cheek remark, he said, “I seem to fit perfectly in this seat,” adding, “Thankfully this young lady next to me was a good sport… and was in for a fun picture.”
