Shane’s tailored blazer only emphasised his weight loss, after he revealed in July last year that he’d already lost 14 kilos but wasn’t done yet. 

Speaking on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast, Shane said he had enlisted a variety of methods to help him lose the weight. 

‘I’ve been doing traditional Chinese medicine, I’ve been doing training and things like that,’ he explained.

‘I’ve dropped 14 kilos, I’m trying to lose another three or four more to get down to 80 kilos.’

At the time, Shane said his looming 50th birthday in September was all the motivation he needed to slim down.  

‘I feel great, I’m 50 this year and The Ashes is just coming up, so I thought now is the time,’ he added.

He went on to say that losing weight had been relatively easy, but keeping it off was an entirely different story. 

‘By the end of the summer – England’s summer – I’ll probably be a fat b*****d again from drinking pints!’ he joked.

Despite his reservations, Shane’s latest photo proves that not only has he managed to keep the weight off, he’s lost even more.

It’s a far cry from his appearance while on vacation in Spain in June 2017.

During that holiday, the ‘King of Spin’ was photographed sporting a fuller figure as he relaxed at the beach in a pair of boardshorts.

He later poked fun at his appearance, describing himself as a lifeguard from ‘the Baywatch-with-big-bellies movie’.
