Brave Boris gets to grips with Arnie

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BUNGLING Boris John­son has chal­lenged Hol­ly­wood me­gas­tar Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger to an ex­treme wrestling match!

The Ox­ford-ed­u­cated Mayor of Lon­don chat­ted to Arnie – who’s ap­peared in clas­sic ac­tion movies like The Ter­mi­na­tor and Preda­tor – dur­ing a ca­ble-car ride across the River Thames dur­ing the Olympics.

And while the pair were sus­pended in mid-air, the tou­sled Tory toff, 48, sug­gested recre­at­ing the fa­mous fight scene from the 1968 World War Two ac­tion movie Where Ea­gles Dare.

In the scene, Richard Bur­ton’s Ma­jor Smith grap­ples with Nazis on top of a ca­ble-car.

Boris – who boosted the buf­foon rep­u­ta­tion when he re­cently got stuck on a zip wire dur­ing a pro­mo­tional stunt – asked the mus­cle­bound ac­tion hero: “Have you ever wres­tled on top of a ca­ble-car?”

For­mer body­build­ing champ Arnie, 65, is said to have re­coiled at the out­landish sug­ges­tion.
