The chiseled youth who was the face of Tonga in the Rio Olympics 2016, became an instant Twitter sensation after he walked down as part of the Parade of Nations. 

When Pita Toufatofua, the Australian athlete, who was Tonga’s flagbearer, walked in the parade glistening and slick with oil, he instantly greased his way into the hearts of hundreds of women. 

Pita will be seen competing in Taekwondo. 

While the glistening youth enthralled audiences and drew loud cheers from the gathered crowds, he quickly became a Twitter trend, and the highlight of the ceremony. Here’s the best of Toga-tweets from Twitter:

And here is a Facebook Tonga-post to end it with elan:

Well at least the slick Pita put Tonga firmly back on the world map, more importantly, on the social media map.
