Popular Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos has given fans another look at his incredible weight loss during an IRL basketball stream. 

Greekgodx has been one of Twitch’s most popular streamers for quite some time – as he regularly streams his IRL [in-real life] antics and even tries his hand at games too, even though it doesn’t always pay off and he has previously found himself as the only person in the world playing.

His enjoyable content has seen the streamer amass over 900,000 followers on the live streaming platform, but brakes were put on his growth when he received a suspension for comments about gender which broke the community guidelines on hateful conduct. However, he took that time off to focus on himself and drop down in weight. 

Despite being a popular streamer, GreekGodX’s weight had been a constant source of memes from viewers.

During his October 8 stream, the popular British streamer took his camera outside as he decided to treat his viewers with some basketball skills. Instead of finding himself in a pick-up game trying to imitate Steph Curry or LeBron James, he decided to showcase his one-on-one dribbling skills.

While some viewers may have joked that he wasn’t going to go pro anytime soon, others were given a different view of his insane weight loss – as he showed himself, again, in full view of the camera as opposed to the full-on face broadcast from his October 4 return. 

Fans who followed his GGXUpdates Twitter account during his suspension got to see the remarkable transformation with posts every few days, but not all of his viewers made the switch to the social media platform.

Regardless, though, his incredible makeover will go a long way to inspiring others to follow in his footsteps – so it helps when he’s even got some motivational advice to go along with it as well.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
