Yuzuru Hanyu opens Twitter, Instagram accounts; announces ice show

Figure skating legend Yuzuru Hanyu has opened more social media accounts and announced his first-ever ice show as a professional skater.

The two-time Olympic champion, who launched his YouTube channel in August, now has a Twitter and Instagram account managed by staff.

Among the first posts in the accounts is a teaser for the ice show titled "Prologue." 

"This is the first ice show that I can do everything by myself," Hanyu said in a message on the official website, as translated from Japanese.

"I hope that various stories will be spun from now on. Let this ice show be the 'prologue' of that story."

Hanyu himself will be producing and directing the show.

The shows will be staged in Yokohama in November 4-5 and Hachinohe in December 2-3.

Aside from the show announcement, the Twitter and Instagram also shared a pair of photos of Hanyu when he was a child.

Hanyu retired from competitive figure skating in July.
