New York: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau showed off his sparring skills outside the political ring on Thursday, lacing up a pair of boxing gloves for a workout during a trip to New York.
On Wednesday, GQ magazine awarded Trudeau a spot on its list of "Most Stylish Men Alive Right Now", calling him a real-life version of a Disney prince and a "snowboarding John Mayer doppleganger."
Returning to the spotlight that accompanied his White House visit and "bromance" with US President Barack Obama last month, Trudeau on Thursday donned a red sleeveless top that revealed his large native Haida raven tattoo to spar at Gleason`s in Brooklyn, a gym made famous by the likes of Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and "the Raging Bull" Jake LaMotta.
With a mix of gym faithful and media members looking on, the 44-year-old Trudeau, who was accused during last year`s election campaign of being a political lightweight, spent most of his hour-long workout sparring with professional boxer and former WBA super welterweight champion Yuri Foreman.
