A father who turned up to his misbehaving son’s physics lesson has won an army of social media admirers.

Brad Howard, 53, gatecrashed his son Bradley’s class as punishment for the teenager repeatedly getting into trouble with his teacher for talking too much.

A photo of the father sitting next to his son in the lesson has been shared and liked by thousands of social media users.

His sister posted it with the caption: "My dad told my brother if he got another call from the physics teacher complaining he would go sit in his class..dad got another call."

The father told Inside Edition: "My son was getting into some trouble in one of his classes in high school and his teacher was emailing me.

"He’s a good kid, but always tries to get a few laughs off whatever crowd is around him at the time."

One Twitter user responded to the photo: "Your dad is amazing."

Another wrote: "Spectacular parenting!"
