One amazing elderly man on the Shanghai Metro Line 16 in China has taught us all a very important lesson: just because you're old doesn't mean you can't be awesome. The man treated passengers on the metro line to a full-blown somersault spectacular as he seamlessly gripped the handrails and perfected mid-air flips like it was nothing.

As you can see from the photos, the passengers clearly loved the display, laughing and cheering on the elderly man as he showed off his seamless acrobatics. Apparently not everyone was as enthusiastic about the man's performance however, as metro staff cautioned that his moves were very dangerous and reminded passengers they should have intervened to stop him.

All I know is that next time I ride the subway, I will be praying that this guy is on my train.
