People are shocked that 50-year-old television presenter and chef Gordon Ramsay has a muscular physique.

In a post to Instagram, the sweary London chef showed he had been working out.

As you might expect from a chef, most of Ramsay's Instagram is photos of food, but others show a man in the shape of his life.

In 2016, Ramsay told Delish that fear is one thing that motivates him to keep fit.

My father passed at 53 with a heart attack.

My brother's an addict, so I've got that scare-mongering going on, on a weekly basis, that I need to stay fit.

Though the world should not be too surprised. Being a chef for between eight and 14 hours a night is probably about the best work out a person could ask for.

Moreover, Ramsay's active life of adventure continued when filming his new documentary Gordon Ramsay on Cocaine, an investigation into the drug and where it comes from, for which he travelled into the South American jungles.

On Monday at a conference in Cannes, Ramsay spoke about the use of cocaine in the chef industry, and his perception that its use was becoming 'out of control'.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ramsay said:

I saw cocaine quite early on in my career. I've been served it. I've been given it.

I've had my hand shaken and left with little wraps of foil in it.

I've been asked to dust cocaine on top of soufflés, to put it on as icing sugar... coke's everywhere.

It's spiralling out of control.

Speaking about the documentary, he told the MipCom conference goers:

I've wanted to understand the 'world' of cocaine ever since I lost one of my chefs at my flagship restaurant in Chelsea and I wanted to learn why it's becoming such an epidemic not just globally but specifically in the culinary world.
