His Stagecoach colleagues never knew he was powerlifting, and neither did his passengers.

But in his spare time, in his garage - at his home in Swindon - Gabor was getting ready for the World Powerlifting Championship.

Gabor - who was born in Hungary started going to the gym back in 1995. He gained his first qualification in January for the Nationals, and then qualified for the World Championship.

At the event, altogether Gabor lifted 670kg - the equivalent of twenty bus tyres. Andrew Pate has been to meet him.
