    It was only a matter of time.

    Do you remember Nicky Libert, the beautiful construction worker from Amsterdam?

    The internet fell in love with Libert after a photographer tweeted a photo of him in his work clothes.

    Then fans went on a mission to track him down.

    People have even approached him at work.

    And now Libert has been signed to global model agency Elite, which has offices in Amsterdam, Ivan Andreas, head of the men's division, told BuzzFeed News.

    The photographer behind the famous photo, Danika, told BuzzFeed News she is happy for Libert.

    Libert told BuzzFeed News the experience has been "unreal", but he won't be quitting his job as a construction worker just yet.
