Eddie Hall is still calling for a rematch after losing his long-awaited "World's Heaviest Fight" against longtime rival Hafthor Bjornsson, and is confident that he will fare better a second time around—but he is also being a good sport and honouring the wager that he and his fellow strongman-turned-boxer made. The terms of the bet dictated that whomever lost the fight had to then get the victor's name tattooed on his skin along with the words "World's Strongest Man" (a title both men have held at different times).

The tattoo bet was the culmination in a series of escalating conditions, which began with the suggestion that whomever lose the fight donate $100,000 to charity. This then became $200,000, and it was then decided that both the winner and the loser should each give that amount to charity. Hall then suggested the figure be raised to $1 million, but Bjornsson countered with the idea for the tattoo.

And now Hall has officially gone through with his end of the bargain, sharing the moment that he gets his opponent's name tattooed on his foot in a video on Instagram.

"OK, there it is," Hall says in the clip. "World's Strongest Man, Hafthor Julius Bjornsson. Could you have had a longer name, Thor?"

"I can see the funny side of this, and it is what it is," he continues, laughing. "This means that down the line, the rematch, if it's there, will happen. I'm a man of my word. I've done everything I said I was going to do, so I'm looking forward to what's next. At least this is not as bad a sin as being a sore loser, and I can take a loss like a man, unlike some people."
