This is the shocking moment a cyclist was hit by a deer in Phoenix Park.

The biker was taking part in the hugely-popular Dublin City Triathlon yesterday when they had an unexpected run-in with a resident deer.

Photographer Erik Scraggs captured the moment the stag collided with the competitor on the track.

But thankfully, neither was seriously injured and the cyclist got straight back into the saddle to finish the gruelling race while the stag joined the rest of the herd.
