This maths teacher managed to keep his secret modelling career a secret from his students, but only for so long, as he has now become an online sensation.
26-year-old Pietro Boselli, who received his PHD in mechanical engineering from University College London, also doubles up as a model, and is represented by Models 1.
He managed to keep his part-time career a secret until one of his students discovered some snaps, and posted a photo online of him shirtless, working out a the gym, alongside one of him working on a maths equation.
According to reports, he trains up to twice a day to keep up his physique, and originally kept his modelling career a secret for fear that his colleagues at UCL, where he lectured until last month, would “look down on him”.
He told the Times: “I think, in a way, I was ashamed. I thought people in academia would look down on me.”
The Italian’s Instagram account now has nearly half a million followers, most of who will be sad to find out that he has a girlfriend.
Many have taken to social media to say they would have paid more attention in class if they had Boselli as a teacher.
