A cyclist captured the shocking moment he was hit by a car, after trying to stop it from driving on the wrong side of the road,
Mikey, a cyclist from London, filmed himself deliberately stepping out in front of a Mercedes when the driver tried to take a right turn near Regent's Park, London - heading the wrong way down the street to cut out a queue of traffic.
The clip shows Mikey attempingt to stop the car, but ending up being knocked off his feet, denting the bonnet in the process.
Another cyclist, who stops after seeing Mikey knocked over, asks the driver: "Why are you driving on the wrong side of the road?"
To which the fuming driver replies: "What are you talking about? Get out my way, man."
He begins to drive forward, once again knocking Mikey off his feet.

"Why are you driving into me?" Mikey asks, to which the increasingly angry motorist responds: "I'm not driving into you. Stop standing in the road, mate. What are you talking about? What's your problem? This is absolutely fine. There's traffic and I'm turning right."
As he approaches Mikey, the cyclist can be heard to warn: "If you assault me, I'm going to call the police."
But that doesn't put him off and the Mercedes driver makes a grab for Mikey's camera - ultimately he fails and heads back to his car.
At this point, police arrive to check out the situation, while a bunch of cyclists stand around to watch how it all plays out.
As he chats to police, Mikey turns his camera off. Turning the camera back on, he says: "Twenty-five minutes later, the driver is shaking his head at me, now very late for work."
He adds: "Bad driving like this is a huge risk to cyclists in Regent's Park - a van driver knocked a cyclist off doing exactly what this driver did recently."
According to Mikey, the driver was slapped with tickets for driving and public order offences.
The cyclist, who regularly shares clips online, says it isn't the first time he's stopped someone trying to pull off the dangerous manoeuvre at that spot.
