A video of Egyptian police recruits flexing their muscles at their graduation parade has gone viral, provoking LOLz in Twitter users.
Bare-chested graduates from the Egyptian Police Academy show off their rock-hard abs by having concrete blocks smashed on their sternums, others leap through rings of fire or dive beneath a flaming cable spool as it rolls over them.

There were also acrobatics displays to entertain President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, with cadets somersaulting over giant tyres, vehicles, a cable suspended between two moving motorcycles and even a rack of sharp spikes.
One hilarious moment involved officers showing their camouflage skills by hiding, very obviously, behind artificial bushes on moving carnival floats.
Twitter users poked fun at the 'circus-like spectacle', with some comparing it to a Gay Pride parade.
