Here’s further proof that MotoGP riders are from a completely different planet. On the last lap of the San Marino GP at Misano, Johann Zarco’s bike ran out of fuel while he was running seventh.

Some motorsport racers would simply give up and take the DNF, but not Zarco. He got off his bike and pushed it down the main straight, eventually taking the chequered flag P15 to score one point.

It was a heroic display of determination and also an incredible demonstration of strength. Zarco had just been racing in wet, tricky conditions for almost 28 laps yet still managed to push his bike.
