Meet Eric the skateboarding dog

Eric, the 18-month-old French bulldog, has become an internet sensation by teaching himself to skateboard.

His talent was discovered in somewhat accidental circumstances.

While out for a walk with his owners in a local London park, Eric ran off with a child's skateboard and proceeded to skate along.

He has received no training but continues to perfect his unique technique.

We hope to see more of Eric and his unusual ability, with rumours of an on-screen performance in the offing.
