We admire this man's resilience.

Teresa Mannion is no stranger to *eventful* news reports, but last night it wasn't Teresa herself who went viral, but her background co-star 'Guy With Flag'.

The broadcast gate-crasher came running into the shot holding a massive US flag, but not only was the flag upside down - the wind absolutely shafted him.

No sooner had he arrived centre stage, than he was completely wrapped up in his prop and propelled behind a tree.

It actually looked like a very stressful situation for the poor divil.

Of course, Twitter got a great gas out of his misfortune.
