AFL star Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin flaunts his bulging biceps as he graces the cover of Men’s Health magazine
AFL star Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin has flaunted his bulging biceps in a white singlet for the cover of Men’s Health magazine.
The star, 36, looked to be in the best shape of his life as she showcased her muscular physique and extensive tattoo collection.
The footballer completed his look with a pair of off-white cargo pants as he posed with his hands in his back pockets.
The photo shoot and interview will be out in the coming days.
It comes just a day after Sydney Swans coach John Longmire revealed Buddy is likely to have a very different on-field role this season.

At 36, Franklin is officially the oldest player in the AFL and 2023 looms as his final campaign booting a Sherrin.
The champion key forward – who kicked his 1000th career goal against eventual premiers Geelong early last season in unforgettable scenes at the SCG – is more likely to be an impact option over the coming months.
Longmire stated there won’t be a reliance on Franklin to win games himself for the Bloods from his famed left foot.
‘I would have thought that’s a good sign for our footy club,’ he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

‘Lance shouldn’t have to be a star performer every year, particularly at [his age] 35, 36.
‘I think clearly that’s an unrealistic expectation.’
A lot is changing for Buddy and his model wife Jesinta Franklin. The pair share two children Tullulah, three, and son Rocky, two.
News broke in November, 2021, that the couple bought a seven bedrooms, eight bathroom Gold Coast mansion for $10million.
Buddy, who left Hawthorn to join Sydney in 2014 on a nine-year deal worth $10million, re-signed with the Swans for another season in 2022.
Meanwhile, Jesinta announced last October that she has signed a prestigious modelling contract with Seafolly.
Jesinta rose to fame in 2010 when she was crowned Miss Universe Australia and later married Buddy in 2016 after four years of dating.
