These pictures show Britain’s strongest disabled man - who holds the record for lifting stones heavier than him.

Mike Bishop, 38, suffers from the ‘invisible illness’ Ataxia where he appears fine one moment and struggles to walk, talk and has temporary paralysis the next.

He now focuses hard on his coordination to stop himself from falling over.

‘Big Mike’, known for his 6’5 stature, was originally diagnosed with episodic Ataxia at 25 after suffering from seizures at 21.
