And he was feeling over the moon after spending his down time touring an astronaut training facility in Houston.

Sharing his visit to Nasa’s Johnson Space Center with his Instagram followers, Hamilton quipped: “Guys I would happily give up my job to come work, I want to be in this pool every day and then go to space. OK?”

Hamilton tried on a space suit glove and a helmet before taking selfies by a training pool.

But he was most at home as he sat behind the wheel of a space buggy.
