Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe just showed the world how excited his country is to host the next Summer Olympics!

As part of the closing ceremony in Rio, Japan accepted the IOC flag in preparation for their 2020 Games.

Video screens inside the stadium showed everyone’s favourite video game character Mario running through the streets of Tokyo, before jumping into a tube that took him to Rio de Janeiro.

Mario then emerged from the tube in the middle of the Maracana Stadium - but it was actually the Prime Minister inside the costume!

Social media absolutely loved seeing Abe playing the iconic character.
