“And the gold medal for long & high jump goes to…..”

A deer flying through the air with gravity-defying skills is going viral on the internet.

The incredible video posted to Twitter shows the deer leaping as high as two metres as it crosses over a dirt road in India and has had more than 130,000 views.

Don't worry - the deer appears to have landed safely on the other side and continued on its way. (Presumably to then go and chat to Michael Jordan about a basketball gig!).

It looks like a scene out of an action movie or walking-on-air Matrix moves - and commenters were quick to show their appreciation for the flying creature.
