Brazil cult hero Hulk shows off incredible transformation out of lockdown and is unrecognisable with new look

HULK has long been known for living up to his name but the Brazilian forward is looking extra bulky after lockdown.

In training for Shanghai SIPG's delayed start to the season, the 33-year-old showed off his huge shoulder and arm muscles.

During lockdown, Hulk, who recently made headlines for marrying his ex-wife's niece, has clearly spent plenty of time with his weights set and, evidently, is yet to visit a barbers.

Fans were also left agasp at the winger's flowing locks that are a far cry from his usual short back and sides.

Shanghai's season gets underway on July 25 after the schedule was devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.

However it is set to be Hulk's last in China after he vowed to consider a return to Europe with a Champions League team.

He told Globoesporte: "My contract ends in December. We already had a meeting and I said I don't want to extend.

"Now it's raining proposals from several countries. It's true that among them are many of Europe's big clubs, competing in the Champions League, and also Brazil. Even from China, but I don't want to stay here.

"I'm not putting the 'money' factor first. I'm thinking most about where I'm going to be happiest and I'm taking my time, listening to my representatives.

"We haven't decided on anything yet. The fact is that, in December, I'm free."

SIPG forked out £45million for the attacker in 2016 after spells with Porto and Zenit St. Petersburg.

And Hulk has been a roaring success in China with the Super League title in 2018 and a tally of 17 goals, plus 10 assists, last season.
