Pita Taufatofua, the flag bearer for Team Tonga, brought spectators around the world to their feet as he marched into the Macaraña stadium on Friday shirtless and greasy. The athlete proudly carried the Polynesian country’s flag among his teammates, but traded their red blazers for a taʻovala, a traditional Tongan dress worn by both men and women on formal occasions. Lucky for us, he accessorized the look with only a shell necklace, braided arm bands, and his oily, smokin’ hot bod.
And as expected, the internet had a quite a bit to say about the shirtless wonder.
Taufatofua, 32, who will compete in Taekwondo during the Games, is the first athlete from Tonga to ever do so. If all Taekwondo competitors look like this one, we’d be willing to bet the sport will have a spike in viewers this year.
