Double decker London bus does push ups

Czech artist David Cerny reveals the athletic Routemaster bus in time for the 2012 London Olympic Games.

The artist has embraced the Olympics and to commemorate their imminent start has created a full-sized Routemaster bus which performs press-ups outside his country’s Games headquarters in London.

David Cerny has turned one of London’s famed double decker buses into a push-up performing robotic sculpture for the Olympic Games. Complete with a groan, the bus does press-ups with the help of an engine powering a pair of giant red robotic arms.

Mr Cerny used a red double decker for his London 2012 sculpture and said he thought push-ups would be fitting as every athlete completes them for training yet they are also considered a form of punishment.

The bus will reside outside the Czech Olympic headquarters in Islington, north London. for the duration of the Games.
