Mayor of London Johnson is on an official trip to Japan and marked the success of the country in England's Rugby World Cup by taking part in a game of street rugby with some children. Unfortunately it didn't go as planned.
Johnson and several schoolchildren were playing on a mini-pitch on the streets of Tokyo when Boris got a little too carried away and bowled over 10-year-old Toki Sekiguchi, who hit the ground hard and "felt a little pain" but said he was "OK" after the hit and was soon playing again.

For his part, Boris was straight over to the child to ask if he was OK and shook his hand.
The pair later posed for a photograph as Boris handed over an official 2015 Rugby World Cup ball to the schoolboy to remember him by (because those bruises will fade eventually).
