This is the moment CCTV captured a man being knocked to the ground by a stray tyre.

The man, named by local reports as Roberto Carlos Fernandes, was floored as he walked past a Continental tyre store in Ipatinga, eastern Brazil.

The 50-year-old suffered chest and face fractures but was later reported to be in a stable condition in hospital.

The tyre is thought to have come from a trailer being towed on the nearby road.
