Gordon Ramsay just got pictured at the beach and turns out he's absolutely ripped

This is pretty surprising

As a man in his 50s who spends a large part of his time around food, I think Gordon Ramsay could be forgiven for not having the physique of a man a few decades younger than himself.

But fans of the celebrity chef will know he likes to keep himself in decent shape. The 51-year-old has taken part in multiple marathons and has even dedicated himself to Ironman competitions.

He's previously spoken about his intense training regime. "My father passed at 53 with a heart attack. My brother's an addict," Ramsay told Delish last year. "So I've got that scare-mongering going on, on a weekly basis, that I need to stay fit."

And, by the looks of it, he's got another Ironman event coming up and so took the opportunity to post a topless image of himself to Instagram.

Captioning it, he wrote: "Iron Chef to Ironman for @greatormondst #teamramsay London Triathlon can't wait! Great way to shake off jet lag.... good luck and congrats to all athletes and a BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers & sponsors couldn't do it without you!"


In an interview earlier this year, he opened up to the Daily Mail, telling that it was a fear that his wife would leave him that first prompted him to get into shape.

"Tana was not impressed with the way I was," he told the newspaper.

"I was overweight, 18 stone. I looked like a sack of s**t. I look at the pictures and think, 'How did Tana stay around?' Because Tana has got better-looking and more gorgeous. And there she is, getting in bed with a fat f**k."
