This is the astonishing moment a foreign tourist believed to be an Olympic gymnast hangs upside down from cables in an airport rafters before plunging to the ground. The woman, said to be from Europe, was picked up at 3 am this morning wandering aimlessly on nearby roads and taken to Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand.

But at around 9am she disappeared - before clambering over barriers on the third floor and onto the metal supports. The woman - with Olympic rings tattooed on her wrist suggesting she may have competed as a gymnast - then hung upside down by her legs for before moving position to swing by her toes. Rescuers spent two hours trying to talk her down before she finally fell and hit another cable on the way down before landing on a giant inflatable bed at around 11am. Airport Deputy Director Kittipong Kittikachorn said: ‘’After being informed of the foreigner hanging from the roof we immediately dispatched all relevant departments to the area. ‘’She was found to be a girl, expected to be European but the nationality has not yet been determined. She has not spoken to anybody yet.’' Rescue workers and firefighters arrived and inflated two giant cushions underneath the girl.

Lamborghini driver can't beat traffic

The driver of a 330,000GBP Lamborghini was filmed thrashing the supercar’s engine - desperately trying to escape busy rush hour traffic. Hep Nguyen, 29, was riding a moped when he found himself alongside the red Aventador Coupe in Hanoi, Vietnam, last Saturday (December 9) afternoon. Despite the supercar’s 220mph top speed, it was limited to just a slow crawl when dozens of riders on cheap motorcycles pulled out in front of it. Even when clear road was in sight, the driver revved the 6.5-litre engine but barely made it ten metres before hitting a row of motorbikes, a 4x4 and a bus. It then tried to overtake but was met with oncoming vehicles and more traffic ahead. Hep, who filmed the clip, joked that however impressive the car was, it could not compete with the busy roads. He said: ‘’I was excited when this car appeared next to me. It’s a very powerful machine. I don’t know who was driving it. ‘’The car costs hundreds of thousands of dollars but at this time in the city they weren’t getting anywhere quicker than the people on old motorbikes.’’ The car is believed to be a red Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster which has a 441,600USD (330,000GBP) base price before the cost of modifications and add-ons. Vietnam is one of the poorest countries in South East Asia with an average monthly salary of 145USD (108GBP) - but is also home to a small group of some 200 ‘ultra rich' with wealth in excess of 30millionUSD (22m GBP).

"It's not fair at all": Christian woman from Jerusalem reacts to Trump's decision

A Christian woman born in Israel and based in Jordan since 1948 has condemned US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital as “terrible" and "not fair at all". Katy Mansour explains how shocked she is by the actual situation and the fact that she cannot even go back to her own country freely: "As I was born in Jerusalem, to take a visa to visit my country, how come? How come? You don't believe it." She talks about her own story and how she grew up in a Jerusalem where all religions used to live together in peace. Ms Mansour then had to move to Amman in 1948, following the first Palestinian migration wave and the creation of the state of Israel. The interview took place in front of an Orthodox church in Arman after the Sunday mass (December 10).

Harlem Globetrotter Shoots Hoops From Top Of Madison Square Garden58s

Harlem Globetrotter Shoots Hoops From Top Of Madison Square Garden

A Harlem Globetrotter player made the shot of a lifetime Tuesday when he sunk a basket from the roof of Madison Square Garden into a net on the ground and 120 feet away. It was 30-year-old Zeus McClurkin, who had never been chosen for basketball teams from the seventh to tenth grades, despite trying out dozens of times, is seen on the video yelling a hearty “Woop!” when he made the shot. Zeus broke a world record on November 12, 2015 for making the most basketball slam dunks, when he managed to get 15 in one minute! The Globetrotters began as the Savoy Big Five in the 1920s. They were one of the premier attractions of the Savoy Ballroom opened in November 1927, a basketball team of African-American players that played exhibitions before dances. After several players left the team in 1928, the rest of them, led by Tommy Brookins, formed a team called the "Globe Trotters" and toured Southern Illinois that spring. Abe Saperstein became involved with the team as its manager and promoter. By 1929, Saperstein was touring Illinois and Iowa with his basketball team called the "New York Harlem Globe Trotters". Saperstein selected Harlem, New York, New York, as their home city since Harlem was considered the center of African-American culture at the time and an out-of-town team name would give the team more of a mystique. In fact, the Globetrotters did not play in Harlem until 1968, four decades after the team's formation. While parts of their modern exhibition games are pre-planned, the games themselves are not fixed.
