A Czech motorcycle racer who was involved in a smash that saw another biker ride over his head came round and started speaking perfect English.
Speedway rider Matej Kus had only mastered a few basic phrases of the language at the time he was knocked off his bike during a race in the UK.
After the smash he was unconscious for 45 minutes, then came round and amazed his team-mates by asking questions in perfect English - with no trace of an accent.
Unfortunately, his new-found language skills did not last.
After the bang on the head - which split his helmet open - he lost his memory for 48 hours.
But when it returned he forgot the English he had miraculously learned.
Now back in the Czech Republic, he said through an interpreter that he wanted to earn English properly.
"Hopefully I can pick some English up so I'll be able to speak it without someone having to hit me over the head," he explained.
