(Newser) – Most of the Olympic highlight reels today include footage not of an athlete but of London Mayor Boris Johnson. The good mayor took a zip-line ride in part to celebrate his nation's first gold medal—and promptly got stuck while waving his little Union Jacks, reports the Guardian. Ground crews had to bring him in to safety, though Johnson kept his sense of humor throughout, as video from the Telegraph shows. "Get me a ladder," he joked to onlookers below.
