This is the moment four men brawled in the middle of the road in central London, bringing traffic to a standstill.
The bust-up was filmed in Picadilly Circus, one of London’s busiest shopping districts on Monday afternoon.
In the clip, two sparring males wrestle and punch one another in the middle of the road.
A third male intervenes and knocks down two men with a single punch – sending him crashing into the middle of the road.
Footage of the fight was posted on social media as the men brawled in the street
As the man struggles to recover from the vicious blow, a fourth male enters the fight and punches the assailant in retaliation.
The pair brawl with each other before the assailant eventually knocks this man to the ground with a single punch too – sending him flying backwards so he lands directly on top of his first victim.
The strange fight dies down as the duo stumble back on to their feet and the clip cuts to an end.
The footage was filmed by @areeb_am on Monday and posted on Instagram.
