Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay left his followers swooning as he showed off his rippling muscles in a topless picture.

The sexy TV chef wowed fans on social media as he posed up on the beach in nothing but his running shorts and trainers.

On Saturday, the chef took to his official Instagram handle to share a picture of himself standing on the beach in black running shorts and wishing good luck to all the athletes.

Alongside the photo, he wrote, “Wishing all the athletes the very best of luck for #kona @ironmantri today , crossing the line for me was one of the most exciting feeling ever! (sic).”

The 52-year-old had received as much attention for his well-chiselled body as he has for his sweary kitchen outbursts.

Ramsay’s fans were way more interested in him.

Boxing coach, Shane McGuigan commented, “Looking shredded mate”.

Another user wrote: “chef you’re so sexy…”

“Hello hottie,” a user commented.

And one said: “Looking mighty fine Mr Ramsey.”
