Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg wins medals on jiu-jitsu debut

Mark Zuckerberg is adding one more title to his résumé: medal-winning martial artist.

The Facebook and Meta founder won gold and silver medals at his very first Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournament in Redwood City, California, to the shock of many in the martial arts community and probably more widely.

Zuckerberg received support for his new hobby from several high-profile athletes.

Other celebrities also congratulated the tech nerd-turned-athlete on his success. US TV host and former teen heartthrob Mario Lopez commented with three fire emojis.

Other famous people have also taken up the sport.

Actor Ashton Kutcher, who took up jiu-jitsu more than a decade ago, has a brown belt in the sport. Actor Jason Statham and comedian Russell Brand have purple belts.

The Peaky Blinders and Venom star Tom Hardy also competes in the UK, and has won competitions in Wolverhampton and Milton Keynes.
