Pita quickly became everyone's favourite flag bearer and an internet sensation when he captured the world's attention at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, carrying Tonga's flag topless, glistening in coconut oil and wearing a traditional Faka-Ha'apai over ngatu (tapa cloth). He lost his first match and then chose to pick up a winter sport so he could compete this year, making him the first Tongan to participate in both the Summer and Winter Olympics.

The Tongan braved freezing cold conditions at the Opening Ceremony on Friday to repeat his star turn, waving his country's flag with his torso again liberally oiled.
