Gordon Ramsay’s teenage son looks the spitting image of him and just ran the London Marathon

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Genetics, it’s a funny thing, isn’t it? You look like your dad, he looks like his dad, he looked like his dad, and so the circle of birth and life and DNA continues. It’s like they said in the Lion King.

Still, it’s interesting when you notice someone looks proper like their dad. It’s a bit of a surprise, even though it shouldn’t be. I’m talking, “shit the bed they’re a spitting image of the dad when they were younger” levels of similarity.

Take Gordon Ramsay’s son Jack for instance. Look at him:

You’ve got to think a young Gordon looked pretty much identical. I mean they even have the same hair.

The youngster’s been making headlines today as he competed in the London Marathon. He and his sister Holly raised £27,861 running the marathon together.

Gordon himself is an avid runner, having run his 10th London Marathon in 2009  in order to complete the goal of finishing 10 marathons in 10 years.

Jack and Holly finished the race with times of 4hrs 30mins and 5hrs 24mins respectively.
