As Spain celebrates its National Day, one paratrooper has had a morning to forget.
Corporal Luis Fernando Pozo mistimed his flag-carrying jump and ended up dangling from a lamppost – all while the nation’s King Felipe looked on.
Tasked with delivering the national ensign to the royal gallery, all seemed to be going well for the experienced paratrooper, who has over 600 jumps to his name.
But sadly all went wrong just moments before he was due to touch down.
The paratrooper’s chute catches on a lamppost and leaves him attempting a rather undignified shuffle to set himself free.
