Olympian Max Whitlock struggles to keep his clothes on for his birthday

Instagram

Happy birthday, Max Whitlock!

The double Olympic champion turns 24 today and what better way for him to mark the occasion than posting a load of shirtless snaps on Instagram?

The artistic gymnast has been celebrating by the sea in much warmer climates than back home, and has shared (and bared for) a few brooding pictures.

Of course, the athlete more than deserves a spectacular birthday after the year he’s just had, becoming Britain’s first ever gold medalist in artistic gymnastic at the Rio 2016 Olympics last summer.

He won gold in both the men’s floor and pommel horse exercises. More recently was made an MBE in the 2017 New Year Honours list.
