Pita Nikolas Taufatofua, the breakout star of the Rio Olympics' Opening Ceremony, has once again oiled up for the world's entertainment.

The taekwondo fighter and Tongan flag-bearer captured the world's attention during the Opening Ceremony with his glossy shine and traditional dress.

On Monday (NZ time) he took to the stage at Maracana Stadium and danced to Julia Michaels and Kygo's hit 'Carry Me', again lathering on the coconut oil.

Taufatofua failed to medal at the Games, his fight getting called off early after he fell 16-1 behind.
