An unlucky athlete fell on his face after a ‘patty cake’ backflip went terribly wrong.

On January 3, stuntman Daniel Teixeira, 17, was practicing ‘patty cake’ backflips, which consist in clapping hands with a friend before leaping backwards, when he lost momentum and landed on his face. 

Despite the nasty impact with the ground, Daniel was unharmed and able to resume his training session shortly thereafter. 

Daniel said: “I haven’t done this trick successfully yet.

“I was just shocked like everybody else, but people around me thought it worse than I did.”
