Boris pulls off amazing basketball shot

Boris Johnson has again found himself going viral after he stunned onlookers by pulling off an incredible basketball trick.

The London Mayor was on the South Bank promoting the forthcoming Euroleague Final Four tournament when he attempted the overhead shot.

He turned his back on the basket and threw a ball straight into the hoop, to the amazement of the assembled crowd.

"Let's be very clear, I was saving that up," he claimed. "I mean, I could have done it any time."

The Euroleague Final Four tournament will be held at the O2 arena next month.

Mr Johnson previously went viral on YouTube when he got stuck on a zip wire in Victoria Park, London, during the Olympics.
