Pyeongchang’s 2018 Winter Olympics just got a bit hotter: The Shirtless Tongan has returned! And yes, the flag-bearer for Tonga went topless again, despite the sub-freezing temperatures in South Korea.

Pita Taufatofua originally set the Internet ablaze during the 2016 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony in Rio de Janeiro, when he went bare-chested ahead of his participation in the Summer Games’ taekwondo competition. Well, now he’s a cross-country skier at the cold ones — but he’s still wearing sandals.

Watch the video below.

Twitter sure appreciated the moment — especially considering the weather. Here are some choice reactions:

Those not live-streaming the Opening Ceremony along with us can catch it with commentary tonight at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on NBC.
