Roger the very buff and manly kangaroo has died, and the world mourns

Roger the kangaroo had a six-pack any mere human being would have died for – and the ability to crush metal buckets in his huge, manly paws.

And now, sadly, he’s an ex-kangaroo.

The heavily muscled boxing kangaroo thrilled the world after a video of him crushing a bucket went viral in 2015 – but has now died at the age of 12.

Roger had 1.3 million Facebook and Instagram followers, and was housed in an Australian kangaroo sanctuary after his mother was killed by a passing car

Even days before his death he was showing off his thickly muscled arms

Fans paid tribute including singer Natalie Imbruglia who said, ‘He always brought a smile to my face. Such a proud strong boy.’

The Sanctuary wrote, ‘Sadly Roger has passed away of old age. He lived a lovely long life and was loved by millions around the world. We will always love you and miss you Roger.’

‘Roger was our alpha male for many years, and he grew up to be a kangaroo that people all over the world have grown to love as much as we love him too.’

‘So we’ll reflect on his life today and for many years to come. We’ve laid him to rest out here so he can always be with his family.’
