But it’s the 43-year-old’s latest photo that proves the intense training is really working to his advantage.
The Luther star shared a post-sauna selfie on Instagram. Flexing his right bicep, Idris captioned the photo, “Cutting weight, two days before first fight, mind in the right place. Fear NO guy.”
Yes, post-sauna means shirtless and very sweaty.
The father-of-two definitely chose the right time to take an Instagram photo.
If his shirtless photo isn't enough, Idris is starring in his own docu-series, Idris Elba:fighter, which will give fans a look into his year-long training regime.
The series is set to air next year.
