Man confident he displayed poise and grace after going arse over tit in the snow

After an unexpected slip on a snowy path on the way to the train station, businessman James Sterling said he was sure the Xmas crowds that saw his arm-flailing collapse to the pavement and lightning-quick return to his feet had admired the way he managed the situation.

And his post-fall swagger was almost convincing according to one hooded witness ‘although not realising he’d smeared dog shit down the back of his trousers kinda blew it’.
