This is the hilarious moment a motorcycle rider received a dose of instant karma - crashing while he was leering at a woman's backside.

The vest-wearing man was riding his scooter along a busy road in Bulacan, the Philippines on January 23, when he noticed the woman.

He repeatedly turned his head to follow her as she strolled along the pavement.

But the man forgot to keep his eyes on the road and while he was looking at the woman and he crashed straight into the motorcyclist in front of him.

Rider Ronhel Lingad, who was in the flow of traffic and captured the moment using his helmet camera, said: ''He would not have crashed if he had been paying attention to other vehicles.''

''I have to admit, I laughed a little bit. This must be what instant karma looks like.''

This is the incredible moment a fearless fireman catches a 16ft king Cobra with his bare hands.

Sutee Naewhart, 37, found the 20kg serpent at a house in Krabi, southern Thailand on January 22.

He dragged the deadly snake out by its tail and finally subdued it after a 20 minute struggle. It was then taken back to the fire station in the Ao Nang district.

Steady-handed Sutee laid out the cobra on the front lawn and demonstrated how he caught it - slowly sneaking up behind the snake and running his hands along its body.

He then lifted the serpent in the air and ran his fingers along its neck before getting a firm grip on its throat to prevent it from striking out.

Sutee said: ''It's not difficult to catch a snake without any equipment but we need to think about safety first.

''I caught this snake using only my hands because I didn't want to hurt it using only a snare. I have had lots of practice. But without any experience, it can be fatal.''

This man has tattooed the names of more than 500 fallen Indian Army soldiers on his body in a show of deference and tribute.

Abhishek Gautam, 31, is an interior designer who lives in the vicinity of Hapur in Uttar Pradesh.

The Indian Army saved one of Gautam’s friends so he thought of getting the names of fallen soldiers inked as a way of paying tribute to their work and courage.

Footage captured on January 22 shows Gautam showing the martyrs’ names tattooed on his back along with historical figures like Mahatma Gandhi and Bhagar Singh.

In an interview with local media, Gautam said: "These days, getting inked for loved ones is the maximum thing that can be shown as a gesture of love. The Indian Army is always there for us and there are many soldiers who have died for the nation. So getting their names inked on my body is a tribute for them."

This could be the world's most chock-a-block car park - where vehicles are crammed in so tightly that drivers have to PUSH their way out.

Hundreds of motorists pile into the free facility in the Chatuchak area of Bangkok, Thailand, every day to avoid paying charges in the surrounded car parks. Fees in those cost around 20 baht (50 pence) per hour.

The popularity of the government-owned space has resulted in chaotic scenes - with cars parked bumper-to-bumper and regularly colliding.

Commuters have even started fitting home-made FOAM padding to their cards to avoid scrapes.

The astonishing situation has lead to the strange custom of drivers leaving the handbrakes off.

When people return to their vehicles, they then have to push the surrounding cars that are blocking them, like a ''giant puzzle game."
