Malaysian diver perfectly executes bellyflop

Malaysian diver Ahmad Amsyar Azman killed his chances of a medal in the preliminary 3m springboard event with a perfectly executed bellyflop.

The 28-year-old achieved last place with the dive that started out well, but before long Azman realised that he had run out of room - and smacked into the water instead.

He is now out of the competition but it could have been worse - he could have been diving into a green pool.

Just look at him go: majestic.

But was he as majestic in the water as Eric the Eel?

Or Peter Kay?

It's a close call isn't it?
