NOT content with notching two consecutive World's Strongest Man titles, Highland celebrity Tom Stoltman is now revealing a hidden talent for the beautiful game.

The 28-year-old is getting involved in this year's Soccer Aid – a charity event that has raised millions for the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (Unicef).

A star-studded cast of celebrities has signed up for the televised event.

Stoltman has been showing off silky skills on the pitch as a formidable goalkeeper as well as taking on –and conquering – the crossbar challenge.

Tom and brother Luke have shared a training video ahead of today's big event.

Tom has also shared an image of him with the captain of the World XI line-up, sprint legend Usain Bolt.

Soccer Aid is being played at the London Stadium on Sunday. Other stars set to appear include One Direction's Liam Payne, Line of Duty's Martin Compston and a host of football stars past and present.

Tom is a huge Rangers fan and made time to watch his favourites in the Europa League final in Seville against Eintracht Frankfurt days before successfully defending his strongman title in California.
