Brazilian striker Hulk took FOUR HOURS to produce urine sample for drug testing after losing almost A STONE during game
BRAZILIAN striker Hulk took four hours to produce a urine sample for drug testing after he losing almost an entire stone.
The former Porto player ran his socks off and was left so dehydrated that he claims he drank 30 litres of water – but still struggled to produce the urine.
The 35-year-old’s efforts were in vain as his Atletico Mineiro side lost 2-0 on the night to Flamengo.
The result meant they were dumped out of the Copa do Brasil 3-2 on aggregate.
And as if Hulk’s night could not get any worse, he was then subjected to a doping test that happen at random for professional football players.
His tireless running saw him lose nearly stone in weight – and unable to produce urine.
According to Marca, the forward said: “Since I arrived at Atlético Mineiro, that was the game in which I was the most dehydrated. Today I lost six kilos.
“It was exhausting. I was tired. I started the match with 97 kilos and finished it with 91.
“I fell into the anti-doping test. I was there for four hours, I drank 30 litres of water. But it was hard for me to urinate. In the end, it worked and now I just want to get home.
The report adds that Hulk left the Maracana at four in the morning due to the delay, and his teammates had to jet off without him.

He then had to take his own private jet back home.
Away from this unfortunate experience, Hulk is enjoying a good experience at Atletico Mineiro.
He has scored 23 goals in 30 appearances and his team sit fourth in the Brazilian league.
