Watch a topless Sunderland fan dive onto a damp-looking concrete floor and slide at Saturday’s FA Cup 3rd round tie between Middlesbrough and Sunderland.

Egged on by a circle of drinking and cheering supporters in the concourse area, the man follows his concrete belly flop with a little dance.

The fans’ spirits appear high despite their side’s 2-0 defeat in the local derby at the Riverside, which was settled by goals from Rudy Gestede and Martin Braithwaite.

As well as being out of the cup, Chris Coleman’s men lie rock-bottom of the Championship table a season after getting relegated from the Premier League.
