Greece has lost its “modern-day Hercules,” Giorgos Tromaras, who passed away on Monday at age 74 after the last fight with his ill health.

Giorgos Tromaras was a wrestler, two-times Greek champion in freestyle wrestling, and one time in European professional wrestling.

Most of all, though, he was a popular hero, a post-war Hercules who could pull train cars with his teeth while his roles in various Greek and foreign films made him a beloved character.
