#Whereihandstand: head over heels for this London trainee stuntman

Posted at 10:00 am, July 23, 2013 in Fun London, Photos of London

One young gymnast has certainly put a spring in our step today, and it seems we aren’t the only ones head over heels for him. The trainee stuntman, who goes as #whereihandstand on Instagram, has 19,800  followers, and has inspired a global troupe of gymnastic go getters to post pictures of their own experimental handstand feats.

Here are our London faves….
