Right-Wing London Mayor Runs into 10-Year Old Boy in Rugby Match (VIDEO)

London Tory Mayor Boris Johnson leveled a Japanese 10-year-old and it's hilarious. During a rugby match with youths in Japan, the perpetually goofy London mayor got a bit worked up and laid into Toki Sekiguchi, knocking him on the ground and causing much internet mockery.


Johnson was in Japan to promote a trade deal. The youth rugby event was part of a broader proportion of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. 

"I felt a little pain but it's okay," Johnson's victim told Sky News.

This marks the second time Mayor Johnson has harmed a poor, defenseless child, having sweep-kicked 9-year-old soccer player last year in a similar media event. 

Lesson: keep your child athletes away from British mayors with unhealthy competitive streaks.
