Cyclist punches lorry driver during road conflict

In the video, the cyclist was seen walking on the side of the road while carrying his bicycle, when the lorry turned left, alarmingly close to the cyclist.

The cyclist then moved out of harm’s way, obviously shocked at the lorry driver’s action and gesturing angrily. The lorry driver then edged the vehicle closer to the cyclist, forcing him to move out of the way and off the road.

The driver, carrying an object in his hand, then got off the lorry and charged at the cyclist.

The cyclist promptly decked him in the face before furiously cycling away.

In the meantime, there is a lovely cacophony of car horns blaring in the background, with a woman’s voice shouting, “F**k your mother lah!”

The circumstances leading up to this incident are not clear.
