We’re totally crushing on Javier Fernández after watching him compete in the Figure Skating Men Short Program last night.
The 26-year-old from Spain (who goes by Javi for short) had us swooning as he channelled his inner Charlie Chapman by wearing a fitted black blazer embroidered with a flower and performing to the soundtrack of Chaplin’s 1936 film Modern Times.
Watch the flawless performance here.
And we weren’t the only ones swooning over Javi’s routine either…

I AM SO PROUD OF JAVI! Flawless quads, infectious charisma, Javier Fernandez is the whole package. I adore his openness, his sincerity. Sure, he's a little bit of a cornball, but too many skaters forget they have the power to make an audience SMILE. Bravo! ?? ??

Javi ultimately landed second place for his performance, behind Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu. The free skate competition later today will determine medals for the competitors.
