Muscle-bound security guard grabs attention at 2016 Brownlow Medal | photos

Who would have thought that one of the most eye-catching people at the Brownlow Medal count would be the security guard delivering the votes?

When an unknown hulk arrived with a suitcase half way through Channel Seven's live coverage of the AFL ceremony last night, viewers were clearly stunned.

Not by the regulation Armaguard uniform, which as you might expect, didn't give the suits and frocks much of a run for their money. No, Australia was briefly captivated by the size of his guns.

And they weren't looking at the one on his belt. The Armaguard representative was so buff, he looked ready to take on 100 Barry Halls to protect those votes.

He got at least three votes for effort. 

One Twitter user thought the guard might trigger a security issue himself.

But the AFL seemed happy with their man, calling him a pair of "safe hands". We agree. No one in their right mind would steal anything off that guy.
