Kirill Tereshin, 21, gained attention after he injected synthol oil into his arms, to increased them by 10 inches in just 10 weeks. He also embarked on an image makeover where he wore women’s make-up and dyed his hair bright colours. The Russian claimed he wanted to break world bodybuilding records, but now says he fears his life is nearly over after he injected more oil into his upper body.
Kiril began bodybuilding after he left the army and moved on to injecting synthol oil to boost his arm development. It is believed his biceps had the circumference of 60cm (24-inches). Doctors have warned the use of synthol can lead to a myriad of health problems, including embolisms in the lungs, strokes, cysts and ulcers.
