Ali Tabrizi Nouri, from Iran, has just won the title of world champion bodybuilder.
He was joined by the world's biggest musclemen on stage in Manama, Bahrain, for the International Federation of Body Building and Fitness World Championships.
Winner: Mr Nouri holds his trophies aloft
The competitors make their muscles more distinct through a combination of fat loss, oils rubbed on the body, and tanning lotions.
Mr Nouri, 36, has come up through the ranks of bodybuilding since taking the light-heavyweight and overall titles in the 2006 IFBB World Amateur Championships.

It was a feast of eye-popping biceps, triceps, abs and pecs as the likes of Nouri, who also won the 90kg category, pursued body perfection in what many outsiders perceive as a bizarre sport.
Perhaps one of the most famous bodybuilders is Terminator actor and now California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
