British snowboarder Billy Morgan bagged a bronze medal in the Big Air at X Games Oslo tonight. The Southampton born olympian added the X Games gong to his growing list of accolades, chief among which was becoming the first human being to land a quad cork on a snowboard.

You remember that right? It was the incident last year that melted 30 per cent of the internet.

Tonight, Morgan added a prestigious X Games bronze to the trophy cabinet, after landing a backside 1440 triple cork. That's four full rotations, while also flipping three times, all while flying through the air on the largest scaffolding snowboard jump ever built.

On the night, 16 year old Japanese rider Yuki Kadono won gold with a backside 1620 (four and a half full rotations, with three flips) while Canadian Max Parrot bagged silver, also with a backside 1620, but one that wasn't as pant-pleasing to the judges as Yuki's.
