Ironman Leo takes triathlon in his stride
Determined to prove he's fit for office, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar spent his Sunday morning cycling 20km, running 5km, and swimming 750m as part of the Dublin City Triathlon.
Having completed the event along with Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy, sports-mad Mr Varadkar, made his way to the All-Ireland semi-final to cheer on Dublin at Croke Park.
Mr Varadkar has taken a leaf out of the book of other world leaders. Last year, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau interrupted a business meeting to demonstrate a yoga 'peacock pose'. Mr Trudeau also joined Mr Varadkar for a jog around the Phoenix Park when he visited Dublin last month.
And Judo black-belt and Russian president Vladimir Putin loves to present himself as an Action Man, posing for photos while hunting, fishing and swimming in the Russian wilderness.
