World's Strongest Man winners forced to sit next to each other in economy seats in hysterical photo

Two of the world's strongest men finally came across a challenge that they had trouble with: sitting next to each other. 

In a hilarious Instagram post this past Sunday, British strongman Eddie Hall is pictured sitting next to four-time World's Strongest Man winner Brian Shaw in economy seats on a flight from London to Scotland. Both jokingly appear to be miserable in the photo. 

"The check-in ladies sat me and [Shaw] right next to each other on the plane from London to Scotland and [no one] on the plane would swap seats," Hall wrote. "Would you swap seats with one of us???....I wouldn't either."

Fellow Instagram users had a laugh at the two's expense. 

"Did they have to keep redirecting the plane because it kept leaning to one side?" one person asked.

One felt particularly sorry for Hall, who is seen sitting in the aisle seat.

"They will not hesitate to smack the crap out of your arm with the drinks cart either," the user wrote. 

Hall, who is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 410 pounds, won the World's Strongest Man competition in 2017. Earlier this year, he announced that he entered the Guinness Book of Records for his 1,102-pound deadlift. He also holds the world record for his 476-pound axle press. 

Hall's American counterpart Shaw, on the other hand, has won the World's Strongest Man contest four times. He is 6 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 419 pounds.
