I was born this way, says Hungary’s Adam on fat-shaming memes

STUTTGART, Germany, June 17 (Reuters) – Footballers nowadays tend to be lean and svelte to keep up with the demands of the fast-paced game, so Hungary forward Martin Adam is not surprised to see social media memes about his unusually large frame, even if some go too far rummybo.

Adam came on as a substitute late in Hungary’s opening 3-1 defeat by Switzerland in Cologne and caused a stir among fans online who were surprised to see a player 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing around 86 kilogrammes running onto the pitch rummy bo.

The Ulsan Hyundai striker also has a shaved head and a large ginger beard, leading to his nickname the “Hungarian Viking”.
“The posts? Of course one or two get to me, I usually have a laugh about it,” Adam, 29, told a press conference at the team’s base on Sunday.
“I was born this way, I have this body shape. I’m not saying that I was this big when I was born, but I have a basic, physique. Genetics – I can’t change that.”
