Boris Johnson gets stuck on zip wire carrying two Union Jacks

Boris Johnson left hanging on zip wire during Olympic event

Queen Elizabeth is not the only Brit who loves a good entrance.

Wearing a blue helmet and waving British flags, London Mayor Boris Johnson tried to zip line over the crowd during his entrance to a BT Live event at an east London park screening the Olympic Games.

After losing momentum in the middle of the line, Johnson awkwardly dangled about 20 feet over the crowd for five minutes. Staff were eventually called over to drag Johnson along the wire to safety.

A Johnson spokesman told the UK’s Telegraph that the though mayor was unfazed by the mishap, “the judges will rightly be marking him down for artistic impression.”
