Pita Taufatofua. That boy knows how to make an Olympic entrance.
After sending the Twittersphere into meltdown with his topless appearance at Rio 2016 Opening Ceremony, the chiseled Tongan is back at it again.
While flag bearing semi-nude in front of the world’s eyes in tropical Brazil takes some bravery, doing it in South Korean sub-zero temperatures takes courage of a totally different type! It’s fair to say that the internet seriously approved.
The Polynesian’s oily-antics even had some online observers in denial.
I'm TOTALLY NOT distracted by @PitaTaufatofua and the Olympics this morning.
Seriously, move along. Off you go, then.

Bermuda must have thought they had won the most unexpected uniform award, but it looks like Pita slid past them in the rankings!
Ok, recap time.

Local journalists think they have uncovered why Pita has taken to Winter sports so well.

The Tongan described the moment in the Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium as ‘a dream’ and for some strange reason most people seem to agree with him.
