People magazine reports on the sensation created when a flag-bearer from the Polynesian country of Tonga appeared on TV screens across the world with no shirt and plenty of oil on his muscled torso.

Pita Taufatofua represented his country in Friday night's 2016 Olympic ceremony in Rio, wearing a traditional outfit accented by a shell necklace.

He's more than just another pretty face (and body); Taufatofua will compete in Taekwondo during the Games, the first representative from Tonga ever to do so.
