Boris Johnson Gets Schooled by Kingsley Okoroh and Plays Ball with Pops Mensah-Bonsu April 08, 2013 15:36

Boris Johnson seems to be a consistent form of embarrassment for the British people, or someone that we get endless joy our of laughing at. 

Thanks to Sam Neter over at HoopsFix, we've been given a look at Boris trying his hand at a bit of basketball. Of course, the usual ridiculousness ensues.  Boris was outside of the City Hall this morning, in London, to promote the Euroleague Final Fours.

Check out the first video of Boris Johnson telling Pops Mensah-Bonsu to try and shoot at the hoop backwards, with his eyes closed. Easy of course. Boris also nails one, although with slightly less panache, all the while looking like a character from Little Britain or the Fast Show.


The best video to come out so far though is Boris going one-on-one with the 7'0" England Under-18 player, Kingsley Okoroh. After revealing that he knows nothing of the sport of basketball (Boris: "Are you allowed to tackle? How do you tackle?"), Boris gets hilariously nutmegged by Okoroh. 

The slow-mo makes this worth the watch!
