The 44-year old 'Long Walk to Freedom' star has taken his kickboxing to a whole new level.

Idris Elba kicks butt — literally.

The hunky actor has won his first professional kickboxing fight.

The Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom star has been undergoing gruelling training from former boxer Nigel Benn to become a professional fighter as part of a three-part documentary series called Idris Elba: Fighter.

Now, the 44-year-old has taken to the ring in his first professional fight that was set up for the documentary, and won his first bout against an unnamed opponent at London’s York Hall on Friday.

Footage of the fight was filmed by Madonna, who was seen cheering her friend on at ringside.

Posting a video of the fight on Instagram, the Queen of Pop wrote: “Idris Elba Smashes it at York Hall! (sic)”
