People watching at home, however, were a little distracted by how much Matt looks like Nintendo character Super Mario.

Hamilton himself got in on the action, posting a tongue-in-cheek request for support using the team hashtag #HamFam.

Creator of the princess-saving plumber, Nintendo, also seemed to agree with the comparisons.

The sibling team currently sit in sixth place, with one win and three losses.
