Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan has set the internet on fire after posting a post-workout photo of his famous "pythons" to social media.

The 67-year-old showed off his insane biceps to his 1.7 million Instagram followers this week following a gym session.

And needless to say, the WWE legend is still in incredible shape.

“At almost 68yrs young and 297lbs arm workouts are starting to get crazy again brother," he wrote alongside the photo.

The post was liked nearly 80,000 times, with fans and fellow athletes frothing over Hogan's form.

"Get it brother," wrote fellow wrestler Chavo Guerrero Jr.

Son Nick Hogan wrote "strong!!!", while Kevin Nash commented: "Fountain of youth".

Hulk Hogan's desire to return to WWE

Real name Terry Bollea, Hogan last competed in WWE in 2006.

Named as the most famous wrestler of all time in 2008, Hogan has previously spoken about his desire to compete for Vince McMahon's company once again.

His last professional match was for WWE rival network TNA, something he previously said he struggles to accept.

According to reports, he tried to secure a match at Wrestlemania in 2019 before being given a cameo role instead.

Hogan was still working with a number of professional wrestling organisations until last year when he was banned by All Elite Wrestling - the WWE's main rival.

AEW boss Tony Khan said Hogan and ex-wife Linda were banned from the company in response to a controversial tweet from Linda about the protests and riots in America following the death of George Floyd.

“Watching the looting, it’s all afro Americans, not sure how robbing and stealing set the record straight but if they want to be heard they need to be civilised,” Linda tweeted last year.

Pro wrestler Prince Nana labelled Linda’s remarks “sickening”, while wrestler and commentator AJ Kirsch wrote: “@LindaHogan, you should just go ahead and delete your entire Twitter account, not just that one tweet. You know the one.”

Khan’s ban on Hulk Hogan is reportedly related to racist remarks he made in 2015.
