It is no secret that Prime Minister Robert Abela is an avid fitness freak, with multiple images of his body-building golden days often making the rounds on social media. 

This fitness lifestyle seems to be deeply instilled into the Labour Party leader’s schedule, despite the business which comes with being the leader of a country. 

Posting to social media, fitness trainer Harsha Bin Azeez shared a quick gym selfie with the Prime Minister, saying that this is how the ‘father of a nation should be. A common man and close to the people.’ 

The selfie earned the Prime Minister praise for his making time to chat and workout like a normal person despite his current political position.
