A man from Weymouth has won the Mr World title for the International Bodybuilding & Fitness Association.
Daz Hallett was the overall winner of the 15th edition of the 2012 Rome championships held over the weekend.
Daz and the rest of the British team competed against male and female bodybuilders from all over the world.
After winning his class, Daz was judged to have the best physique by the italian judges but didn't realise at first that he had won.
"I wasn't sure that I had won because it was all first announced in Italian.
"So it wasn't until the competitor next to me, who came second, congratulated me that I knew that I won," said Daz.
Since winning a bodybuilding competiton in Dorchester in 2008, Daz plans to continue battling for titles.
"I'm looking next to going to the Universe, which is another large international competition next year, and I'll just try and keep my title again next October," said Daz.
