He’s been focusing on his health in recent months following kidney surgery earlier this year. 

And on Wednesday, AFL superstar Dustin Martin was seen showing off his slimmed-down physique in Melbourne. 

The 30-year-old Richmond player, who is believed to have lost a whopping 10kg due to following a strict fruit-only diet while in recovery, was seen leaving the Brighton Baths Health Club after a swim.

Dustin looked fit and healthy after his light workout session, keeping things casual in a pair of baggy grey sweatpants and a black jumper and T-shirt. 

He covered up his countless tattoos on the outing and carried a backpack over his shoulders. 

He is understood to have lost a staggering 10kg since recovering from surgery for a lacerated kidney back in July.

The Brownlow medallist was placed on a strict fruit-only diet to help his recovery following the surgery. Fruit-only diets are regularly used to treat kidney trauma. 

Richmond Physical Performance Manager Peter Burge conceded in August that Dustin had ‘lost a little bit of weight’ due to the unusual nutrition program.

‘He has had to manage his diet [for his] health a little bit over the last couple of weeks and will do over the next three to four weeks as well,’ he said.
