Game of Thrones' Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson has said he could miss the birth of his son in quarantine as he waits for the results of a coronavirus test.

'The Mountain', 31, revealed on Instagram on Sunday that he was coming up to the end of a seven-day quarantine after previously being in close contact with someone who was diagnosed with the virus.

If he tests positive he will have to self-isolate for a further 14 days and he may miss the arrival of his son who he will soon welcome with his wife Kelsey Henson, 30.

Accompanied by a shirtless snap showing off his rippling torso, he penned: 'I'm finally coming up to the end of a seven day quarantine where I will be tested to see if I've contracted Covid19 after being in close contact with someone who was diagnosed shortly after doing some work for a job. 

'If I am positive it will mean a further 14 day quarantine. Unfortunately this means there is a chance I will miss the birth of my son and unable to be beside my wife to support her as she gives birth and welcomes him to the world.
