This isn't the first time that John has shared footage of Ben swinging off a bar either, as back in May the actor posted another clip of the 11-year-old's gymnastics skills, which again received mass praise from his followers.

John is a doting father to his children and while Ben is not yet on social media, his oldest daughter Ella made sure to pay a public tribute to her dad last weekend as they marked Father's Day.
