Video: Cyclist in Brazil rides over cobbles - while balancing a FRIDGE on his shoulder

There were less deserving gold medallists in Rio this month

A man in Brazil has been filmed riding his bike across cobbles – with a full-size fridge-freezer perched on his shoulder while he steers his bike one-handed.

The video was posted to Facebook by Luan Paim, who suggested the cyclist may share some genes with the Incredible Hulk.

It's not the first video we’ve seen from the country showing a rider undertaking an unusual balancing act as they pedal – remember the chap who balanced a gas canister and a watermelon on his head?

Nor is it the first time we’ve featured a video of a cyclist riding with a fridge – a few years ago, we covered a chap in Cambridgeshire who had been spotted with one in Cambridgeshire, although in this case it was on his rear rack rather than his shoulder.

That's not a fridge, it's a mobile phone from the 80s. He's saying "Olá? Olá? Eu estou na bicicleta !"
