He shared that he’s mainly here for the F1 Grand Prix, as well as a Tag Heuer event held at Gardens By The Bay on Wednesday (18 Sep).

News of his visit to Singapore has shook local fans, with many eager to catch a selfie with him in public.

Funnily, with the haze getting worse, netizens are also hoping the iconic ‘God of Thunder’ will be able to make the haze go away.

He says in the video,

Hi, what’s up guys? I’m in Singapore for the moment for the Formula One Grand Prix and tonight I will be at a Formula 1 event tagging up with Tag Heuer, so do check it out.

In his following Instagram stories, he can be seen on the 57th floor of the hotel, where the infinity pool is located.

The stories also included scenes of him not being able to walk very far as he occasionally stopped to take photos with his fans.

His friends jokingly pout at the camera. This may be due to the number of times he’s had to stop.

The victor turned out to be Max. Guess even the son of Odin just wasn’t fast enough.
