Gordon Ramsay is primarily known as a celebrity chef and swearing aficionado, but he is also an actual ironman – not in the Tony Stark sense, but in the ‘performing feats of athletic endurance on the beach’ sense – and he has the receipts to prove it.

Overnight, he shared the below photo on Instagram, showing his shirtless rig as he stands on the starting line of the Kona World Ironman Championship in Hawaii, the world’s premier ironman event.

The triathlon incorporates a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride and a 42.1km run, and we are bloody exhausted just thinking about it, but your boy Gordon has taken part every year since 2013, and has promised to return once again next year.

Back to that shirtless pic, though – since he shared it, it has racked up close to 100,000 very thirsty likes, with Instagram displaying absolutely no chill in its newfound appreciation of the 50-year-old chef.

Comments ranged from “thicc daddy” to “he thicccccc bruhhh” to “Gordan thic asf” to “HOLY SHIT DADDY STOP (don’t stop).” “Eso es un cuerpo chef, jajaja”, said yet another admirer, and when we ran that one through Google Translate, it seemed somewhat thirsty also.

User taylorhimself  put it most succinctly, simply saying “this guy fucks.” You know what, user taylorhimself? I think you might just be on to something.

Last year, Gordon Ramsay revealed his workout routine to Delish, saying that in the three weeks leading up to the race, he’ll swim three days a week, and go for a cool eight-hour, 180km bike ride on Sundays, followed up by a 10 or 15km run.

To be honest, we’re not really sure where he gets the energy to swear at people as well as all this, but we’re very glad he does.
