As he turns head to the left, his pal, who is topless and just wearing a black shorts and a bucket hat, comes at him all of a sudden.

The bloke slides in from the side at speed and kicks right at his ankle.

A loud "pop" can be heard and he falls to the ground with a dislocated ankle.

One man is laughing but another just realises how bad the situation went, adding: "Oh my God, he's broken his ankle."

The video has been viewed more than 1.3 million times and viewers were horrified by the injury.

One viewer wrote: "That was minging! You can actually hear the bones crack!"

Another gave a football reference and said: "That's a straight red!"

Some said the move was "unnecessary" while others believed the man will have a hard time recovering.

"Hope the lad's okay, it's a nasty dislocation. The pain is gonna kick in when the cast set," one commented.
