THIS. IS. AWESOME.
Bear Grylls, the coolest dude ever, was carrying the Olympic Torch today, and completed his route by walking half a mile down an empty street.
Just kidding! He zip-lined off a bridge while fire works exploded behind him!
"I was kind of worried about the torch going out but it stayed alight. It was amazing. I was a bit nervous about rope and fire but it was fine and we are in one piece. They said the torch had been tested in a wind tunnel but you don't really know. A wind tunnel's one thing but the Tyne Bridge when it's a bit blowy is a different thing."
Then he ate 17 live frogs and drank his own pee for the hell of it!
