THIS is the heated moment a cyclist launches a foul-mouthed tirade at a driver seconds after they crash.
GoPro footage from a man on his bike shows him cycling alongside a car on the left-hand side of Blackfriars Road near St. George's Circus in London.
Moments later, the driver can be seen pulling in in front, cutting the cyclist off.
The man on his bike, who did not wish to be named, is then forced to swerve and hit the wing mirror and the side of the car.
He can be heard saying: "You f****** stupid c***! You f****** idiot!
"Are you f****** blind?"
The driver gets out of his car to check the damage, riling up the cyclist more.
"Woah, woah, why are you bothered about your car, you nearly f****** maimed me," he can be heard shouting.

"In that split second I thought 'this is going to end badly', but I got a lucky escape from serious injury, only a few bruises."
He added: "I was pumped full of adrenaline and immediately started having a go at him.
"I regret the things I said, but it could have been a lot worse and I was raging in the heat of the moment.
"You can see that he only indicates after he manoeuvres the vehicle – obviously without looking for cyclists."
The cyclist said both he and the driver apologised for their actions, "me for swearing and him for hitting me with his car".
And he added: "One man waiting at the bus stop claimed I should have been in the cycle lane on the other side of the road but I wasn't even going that way so I told him to pipe down with some choice words."
