Watch pedestrian race Tube train from Mansion House to Cannon Street - then hop back on to the same train - London - News - London Evening Standard

More on this story....: "Ever got stuck on the Tube and thought it might have been quicker to walk?

One Londoner has proved that travelling on foot could be the answer to commuter hell.

James Heptonstall filmed his 380m sprint from Mansion House to Cannon Street station while his friend Noel Carroll took the Circle Line Tube for the same journey.

He made it back on to the train with seconds to spare and was applauded by his fellow passengers.

The pair created a video of the stunt, which included climbing 75 steps and passing through two ticket barriers, using GoPro cameras and uploaded it to YouTube last month."
