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.
