The Slovakian-born apprentice programmer worked out twice a day and used steroids which turned him into a 7ft 2ins and 19-stone monster of a man.
Four different types of steroid were found at his home in Somerset.
Andrej’s heart weighed 680g, and a normal heart is between 400 and 500g. He wasn’t a normal man. Steroids would have enlarged his heart, and having a big heart predisposes thoracic rupture.
His family were of course devastated and said:
He was loved and known by many people, each with their own story to tell. Andrej was a very keen bodybuilder with aspirations to become the new Rock… he will never reach that height now.
Andrej had also previously been diagnosed with lung problems and his GP thought he had acromegaly, a disorder caused by excess growth hormone production.
You may want to look like your idols lads, but remember, a bit of hard work and some patience and you’ll get there. These dodgy drug shortcuts don’t work.
