They say two wrongs don’t make a right, but in this video we can see that if you’re both in the wrong the least you can do is both jovially admit it, pick yourselves up and go about your business.
We’ve no idea who the rider and pedestrian are in this clip, but we think you’ll agree the pedestrian deserves a medal for being surprisingly pleasant about being knocked on his arse, and at least an 8/10 for his rolling fall.

Our official grumpy Northerner, John has been riding bikes for over 30 years since discovering as an uncoordinated teen that a sport could be fun if it didn't require you to catch a ball or get in the way of a hulking prop forward.
