Moscow: wakeboarders take to the streets following torrential rain

Russian wakeboard riders seized an opportunity to show off their skills in Moscow after water flooded the city streets following torrential rain on Monday.

As cars drove slowly in deep water, a wetsuit-clad rider towed by a jeep demonstrated various jumps and tricks.

Moscow authorities issued a warning for people not to use their cars and to avoid leaving doors and windows open.

Emergency services said 80 people were evacuated from cars and buses stranded by water.
