His name is Pita Nikolas Taufatofua, and as the oiled-up, shirtless flag bearer for Tonga, he certainly took Twitter by storm during the Parade of Nations at Friday’s Opening Ceremonies.
According to his personal website, the Australian-born 32-year-old taekwondo athlete has spent “his whole adult life working in homeless shelters with the underprivileged to show and teach people the power of self belief.”
Oh, and then there's the Instagram. You won't want to miss that :)
