You should probably listen to him, Cristiano. He doesn't sound like he's joking.

Icelandic strongman and 'Game Of Thrones' star Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has issued a stern warning to footballer Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Portugal's clash with Iceland in the Euros next week.

Björnsson, who is best known for playing The Mountain on 'GoT', threatened to crush the star striker's skull with his bare hands if he scored any goals against the Scandinavian nation's team.

The two teams will be facing off at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in Saint-Étienne on 14 June at 8pm GMT for their first match in Group F.

This is Iceland's first time qualifying for an international football competition, so it's understandable that Björnsson wants to do anything he can to help his home team win.

It may all be for nothing, however, as the bookmakers have given them 100/1 odds of becoming the European champs. But, stranger things have happened.
