Ever wondered what happens if you slip on an Olympic diving board?

Don’t worry, it’s not as painful as it sounds.

AN UNFORTUNATE SLIP on an Olympic diving board ended with a painful-looking crash into the water and a wave of puns on Stephan Feck’s name.

The German was in action during the preliminary rounds of the men’s 3m springboard where his attempt at a forward 3 1/2 somersault ended about half a somersault too early in sort of a reverse belly-flop.

It could be worse. At least he was well clear of the board.
