The 2012 Olympics may be going quite smoothly with the exception of one embarrassing moment for the mayor of London.

Holding British flags while taking a ride on a zip line, Boris Johnson appears to be having a good time trying to fly when he fell short of the landing at the other end of the line leaving him hanging aimlessly above the London crowd.

The judges would have probably taken a few points off for artistic impression.

The Brits seem to have trouble having fun don't they?
