Thirst Trap of the Day: Jonathan Bailey Breaks the Internet with Sweaty Marathon Pic

Kilian Melloy READ TIME: 2 MIN.

Out "Fellow Travelers" and "Bridgerton" star Jonathan Bailey posted a snap of himself looking hot and sweaty after running a half marathon in London, and the gay internet melted down.

"This weekend he was one of around 20,000 people to take part in Hackney Moves, London's biggest and most popular half marathon," Metro noted.

"Ahead of the event, Jonathan put the call-out for donations, as he was fundraising for Just Like Us, the LGBT+ young people's charity, which works with schools and young people across the UK."

Bailey - who is set to appear on the upcoming third season of "Heartstopper" - also made time afterwards to give an appreciative shout-out to those who answered his call for donations, as well as to the organizers and volunteers that made the event a success.

In his May 19 Instagram post, Bailey said: "THANK YOU for your continued knockout donations to @justlikeusuk and to everyone at @hackneymoves for making this a very special day for thousands of people. 💥"

Fans of the handsome out star expressed their appreciating in turn.

"The way this pic is breaking the gay internet 🛜" one person posted.

"ARMS???????? Woah," another added, zeroing in on one of the pic's more tantalizing features.

"that bicep is bigger than my head," another seconded.

"dear god do I love arm," another gasped.

Prior to his running of the half marathon, Bailey alerted his fans about the event and made a case for supporting the good work of Just Like Us, as organization that supports LGBTQ+ youth.

"LGBT+ kids are twice as likely to be bullied, depressed, anxious and lonely on a daily basis," Bailey noted. "Almost all of them have heard homophobic and transphobic slurs.

"I know - and maybe you do - how awful that can be," the actor added. "Just Like Us are leading the fight to make them feel understood, accepted and celebrated. A fight we shouldn't need to have.

"But until we win it, and for the sake of my knees, please throw your love their way, donate to them and sponsor me on my gallop!" Bailey went on to say.
