Boris Johnson ended up dangling 20ft in the air after getting stuck while taking part in a zip-wire act.
The London Mayor took to the zip wire, in Victoria Park, East London, following Team GB’s first gold medal victory.
But he was left hanging for several minutes after he lost momentum and got stuck over a crowd of people.
Johnson, , with safety helmet firmly on and a union flag in each hand, flashed his ankles as the safety harness pulled up his suit trousers.
“This is great fun but it needs to go faster,” he joked, as onlookers snapped photos on their mobile phones.
The Mayor’s spokesman said: “Clearly the judges are likely to mark him down for artistic interpretation and, unlike Team GB, he won’t be bagging any gold medals today but he remains unbowed.”
