Man versus shark. Man wins. Sort of.

This video shows the moment a man wearing a GoPro jumped into Sydney Harbour and encountered a great white shark. Almost immediately after surfacing, his friend above can be seen pointing and heard shouting the one word no one wants to hear in Australia: "Shark! Shark!"

The video has been titled "Man Fights off Great White Shark in Sydney Harbour", which is a touch misleading. As you'll see, what the man actually does is flail hysterically, utter a few mortal, gurgled shrieks, while the shark takes a couple of nonchalant glances before retreating back into the depths.

Still, great video.
