An acrobatic youngster found a quick way to get across Oxford Street that was unusual to say the least.

In a short but spectacular YouTube video, the youth can be seen running between a couple of taxis to the halfway point and then launching into a somersault which he landed pretty smoothly on the opposite pavement.

It was an eye-catching display of agility, but we’d like to see the little show-off trying it again when there’s a bus in his way.
