A VIDEO of a man described as an ‘Irish tourist’ singlehandedly taking on an angry mob of shopkeepers has made TV news in Turkey.
CCTV footage shows a man in a white t-shirt accidentally spilling several water bottles from the fridge of a convenience store in Istanbul.
An argument follows, and the angry shopkeeper then begins hitting the unarmed man with sticks and chairs, with the help of a few other locals.
The tourist fights back, flooring one of his attackers with a single punch at one point.
Later it emerged that the Irish man is an experienced boxer.
The footage was shared by Turkish channel Haberturk TV on Twitter on Tuesday night, and went viral.
