Mick Fanning, one of the world's top surfers, has been attacked by a shark during a televised competition in South Africa.
The Australian emerged unharmed after punching the shark and swimming away from it, he said.
Video of the attack showed the shark's fin rising out of the water behind Fanning as he paddled on his board before taking his turn in the J-Bay Open event in Eastern Cape.
Fanning was picked up by a jet ski after the attack and taken to shore.
The competition was stopped following the attack.
