The last time we had a good hard look at Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw, he was carefully positioning his privates for a nude photo shoot for the British magazine Gay Times.

But in recent days he’s kept it covered and has instead been paying attention to balls of a different sort as a special guest at the Australian Open in Melbourne.

The 29-year-old pop star and avid tennis fan landed Down Under on Sunday and headed straight to Rod Laver Arena — the tournament’s showcase court — for a soundcheck.

He wore a breathable white Henley top that showed off his pec-tacular definition, and teamed it with white shoes and ankle socks, which left us shouting “Game, sex and match!”

His cherry red shorts didn’t just provide a splash of colour — they also showed off his gym-honed legs, which helped him glide to first place on Sweden’s Let’s Dance back in 2006. 

The “Heroes” singer uploaded a photo to Instagram to mark the occasion, and joked that the experience is “as close as I’ll ever get to becoming a tennis pro.”

But he’s making sure to take in plenty of protein anyway.

On Wednesday he uploaded a photo of him and his crew enjoying a luxurious lunch consisting of plenty of meat and veg, all washed down with white wine.

“Things could be worse,” he wrote on Insta, shortly before heading to the second round match between Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer and Ukraine’s Alexandr Dolgopolov.

Officials at the tournament are clearly pleased to have him.

On Wednesday they uploaded a video in which Måns sang tournament-themed parodies of popular songs.

In honour of Venus Williams he sang Shocking Blue’s “Venus”; paying homage to Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard he turned “Genie in a Bottle” into “Eugenie in a Bottle”; and, perhaps funniest of all, he nodded to Russia’s Ekaterina Makarova with “Macarena.”

Måns will give a series of performances in the country as part of his Heroes Tour Australia. We also suspect he’ll squeeze in some time for his ongoing bromance with Guy Sebastian.
