Unless you’ve been living under a rock – one of the old fashioned rocks that doesn’t have wifi – you’ll have heard about Aussie surfer Mick Fanning being attacked by a shark in the middle of a WSL surf contest televised live on TV.
Well, the three time ASP World Champion has just got back into the ocean after the shocking attack, and was swiftly chased back out by yet another shark.
It’s the kind of thing that you couldn’t script, and we’re definitely not saying that scripting is exactly what american TV show 60 Minutes, who were filming Fanning for his fist big interview since the incident did. Nope. No way.
In this teaser for the televised interview, you see Fanning on the beach, trepidation understandably etched across his face. Even his mom, Mrs F, is there to keep an eye on her boy.
But, no sooner is Mick out in the line up he’s frantically heading for a nearby jet ski, having seen a shark fin bobbing out of the water with him. What are the chances, eh? With a TV film crew there, ready to get all of the footage – apart from footage of the elusive shark of course.
It, of course, goes without saying that we wish Mick Fanning all the very best as he comes back from what must have been a genuinely terrifying moment two weeks ago at the Jeffreys Bay comp.
