Greg Norman set the internet on fire last week with a steamy pic of his naked body by a river in Colorado and now he’s revealed it’s all thanks to his wife.

Norman, 62, and his wife of seven years, Kirsten, are enjoying a beautiful summer getaway in the mountains of Colorado and had topped off for a quick wash when ‘The Shark’ decided to strip off.

Speaking on Sunrise this morning, Norman said it was Kirsten who convinced him to share the snap with his Instagram followers.

“It was a long day of riding … and it was nice to jump in,” he said.

“She said put this up on Instagram you look hot!”

It seems that was all the convincing Norman needed because he promptly shared the photo and watched it go viral.

Comments on the photo ranged from “What the hell were you thinking” to “hubba hubba”.

While fans were split down the middle there’s no denying Norman is looking fighting fit in his 60s!

What do you think of the cheeky snap? Are you a fan of Norman?
