    A bloke who injected oil into his arms in a bid to have bulging muscles has awarded himself the prestigious Mr Olympia bodybuilding title in a bizarre clip showing him flexing his outrageously large limbs.

    Kirill Tereshin, who was dubbed theRussianPopeye for his whopping enhanced triceps, regularly updates his thousands of TikTok followers on his progress.

    His most recent video shows the social media sensation declaring himself a “professional bodybuilder” before warning of a “one round knockout” and throwing wild punches into the air.

    The self-proclaimed hunk ends the odd footage by treating baffled viewers to a close up of his hugely inflated arms, that he reportedly achieved through permanent synthol oil injections.

    It has led to flocks of comments from concerned fans, with one warning: “I’m pretty sure the oil can block arteries and stuff” and another accusing him of actually being a “professional oil injector”.

    Another asked: “How does bro put his shirt on?” with a fourth joking: “This bloke could end the oil crisis singlehandedly with what’s in his arms.”

    Aside from looking absolutely bonkers, Kirill has injected can damage muscle tissue and endanger cardiovascular health.

    Despite giving himself the Mr Olympia title over his huge arms, the bodybuilder has clearly done nothing to improve his strength and wasforced to tap out of a cage fightwhen he fought online personality blogger Oleg Mongol in the cage.

    Kirill and his tree trunk arms were battered by his normal-sized opponent and 'Popeye' was forced to tap out.

    In the same year he decided to take on Russia's face-slapping champion Vasiliy 'The Dumpling' Kamotskiy at his own game. Kirill came out of the contest half awake and barely able to stand.

    Kirill has been warned over his unusual arms in the past and has had medical problems in the past.

    After doctors warned Kirill that he may lose his arms, he went through two rounds of surgery to remove dead muscle and skin from his triceps.
