In awe of Thor! Shirtless and super buff Chris Hemsworth shares mesmerising video of him running along the beach

Chris Hemsworth's muscular physique wouldn't have looked out of place alongside David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson on Baywatch. 

And on Monday, the hunky actor gave us a glimpse of what it would have been like if he'd starred on the cult TV show. 

The 33-year-old uploaded a video to Instagram of him running towards the sea as he showed off his toned build.

Looking the part: Shirtless Chris Hemsworth showed off his muscular physique as he went for a jog on Monday 

With his ripped torso in full view, the Thor star jogs toward the water before his dog begins to chase him. 

Chris looked in great shape as he wore only a pair of black swimming shorts for his run. 

The actor uploaded the picture beside a humorous caption, quoting another man famous for his muscles, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Man's best friend: Chris captioned the video 'I had to cut the video short because this wild dog ripped my legs to pieces but as a great man once said "I'll be back"'

It read: 'I had to cut the video short because this wild dog ripped my legs to pieces but as a great man once said "I'll be back".' 

And to clear up any confusion for followers who actually thought the star might have lost his legs, he later posted another photo accompanied by '#mylegsarefine'.

Chris's latest posts come as the Gold Coast Bulletin report that the Melbourne-native is ready to splash out more than $8 million on the renovation of his Byron Bay estate.
