Sacha Baron Cohen has wholeheartedly embraced the Australian lifestyle since moving his family to Down Under earlier this year.

And the 49-year-old comedian kicked off his Friday with an early morning swim in an outdoor pool in Sydney.

The Borat star braved the chilly weather for some light exercise in a gray and blue rash vest and black board shorts.

He streamlined his performance by wearing a black swim cap while swimming laps.

Before stepping into the cold water, he did a few stretches to get limber.

As he walked to the pool, he stopped and smiled at someone upstairs on the balcony—perhaps a fan who recognized him.

Sacha braced himself for the cold water as he stepped into the pool and did a breaststroke.

The prankster had to get used to the temperature before he could really get going.

The Ali G star appeared to be the only swimmer that morning, perhaps because he got to the pool so early.

He enjoyed an entire lane to himself and swam at a brisk pace, enjoying the tranquility.

About half an hour later, Sacha finished his swimming session and returned home.

The Les Misérables actor donned a casual outfit consisting of a striped hoodie, gray sweatpants and sneakers.

He remained inconspicuous by wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses, and slung a backpack over his shoulder.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 actor enjoyed a sunny morning stroll through a park.

He was then spotted talking to a friend on his walk, and the two appeared to be sharing an animated conversation.

But their catch-up was short-lived, as the Oscar nominee soon made his way home.

Sacha’s morning swim comes after his latest film, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, explored some unsavory and dangerous aspects of American life.

His wife, actress Isla Fisher, revealed last month that her husband had kept details about the pranks he played on her during filming.

“I’m so thankful I didn’t know sooner so I didn’t have to worry,” the Godmothered star, 45, admitted in an interview with Marie Claire Australia last month.

Sacha was away for 70 days shooting the Amazon Original movie, during which time Isla was in the dark about his exploits.

“Sacha was very kind by not sharing what he wanted to shoot every day,” she said.

After getting home safely, he told his wife about a scene, “Oh, I was at a pro-gun rally; everyone had guns with them.’

The scene in question depicted Sacha – as Borat – leading a racist sing-along at a gun rally, before fleeing the event in a bulletproof vest after his real identity was revealed.

Elsewhere in the interview, Isla spoke about her marriage to the funny man and their decision to move to Australia with their three children.

The infamous private actress admitted she was “very lucky to have met Sacha” at a party in Sydney in 2002.

“I’m always surprised that I have a job, is married and has my family – everything else feels like a bonus,” she added.
