LONDON (AP) Croatia’s Jokich Kubic has lost two more pounds since losing two stone to regain his elite status.
Kubic has gained weight since losing 10 stone in August, losing 20 and 22 stone respectively.
He said: “I had to lose 10 more than 20.
I lost 30.
It was a lot of fun but I’m happy with the result.
I have to keep gaining, I’m hungry for more.”
The 34-year-old has lost weight in his last six weeks of training.
The Croat was named European Footballer of the Year in the first half of the year and will be hoping to take home the prize at the European Championships next month in Russia.
Kunic is one of just three players to win the award.
The other three are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
