Man takes selfie in front of crash during Olympic torch relay


The Olympic torch relay has endured more than its fair share of mishaps as it winds its way to Rio for the 2016 Games.

The fire extinguisher.

The jaguar.

The wheelchair tumble.

Now there’s this: A police officer on a bike collided with an officer on a motorcycle and brought the whole relay to a halt.

To make matters worse, a spectator then calmly walked into the street to put himself in prime position for a selfie. A camera rolled all the while. Watch the video here.
