Tonga's Pita Taufatofua Gets Oiled Up by 'Today Show' Hosts!

Pita Taufatofua, the flag-bearer for the kingdom of Tonga, gets his body oiled up by Hoda Kotb during an interview on The Today Show on Monday morning (August 8) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 32-year-old taekwondo practitioner went viral around the world after he was seen going shirtless with his body oiled up during the 2016 Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony last week.

“I was walking through the opening ceremony, and someone came up to me, they were just taking photos nonstop, and they said to me, ‘You know you’re trending on Twitter in every major country?’” he said. “Once I had a look, it had just gone everywhere.”
