Brilliant photo - I like the fact that nobody on the ground has even noticed!

Yeh, like Dereke said, the punters have missed a classic

Survived, thankfully. Stopped by the cams. Although, I do remember having time to think 'I wonder if I'm going to hit the ground....' Climbed back up and finished it (for the record ;)
