Teachers or principals participating in sports with their students is a great way to bond.
They can be seen as one of the students, engaging in games and fun activities without the excessive hierarchical structure of school.
On the very limited downside though, the more relaxed atmosphere tends to give rise to more opportunities for somewhat funnier reactions.
Take Twitter user Shukor's post.
The picture showed what appears to a secondary school's principal taking part in a school race.
The post has gone incredibly viral, amassing more than 2,000 retweets in less than a day.

Here is the picture.
Here are other places where the principal would have fit in well.
Here he is toe to toe with the world's fastest man
Here he is on the same pitch as Cristiano Ronaldo
And this is him participating in the running of the bulls.
What a life he must have lived.
