    This is the astonishing moment a police officer disarms a machete-wielding man using his bare hands.

    Arun Kumar was on patrol near Kayamkulam, in India, when he was attacked by a man.

    Footage shows the police officer getting out of the patrol car and approaching the man, who is on a moped.

    The man then reaches for a large blade in a white towel before threatening the cop with it.

    The man shows his weapon and then swings the machete at Mr Kumar, who amazingly stops it with his hand.

    The pair then ensues in a tussle before the cop manages to wrestle his attacker to the ground and disarm him.

    In 2019, we reported how a police officer risked his life for a commuter who ran across rail tracks in a bid to catch an approaching train after seeing the man struggling to climb onto the platform.

    CCTV footage showed Anil Kumar, 55, jumping onto tracks and racing over to a man wandering towards the platform.

    After giving the man a push to safety he dashes out of the way of the fast-moving train.

    India's Railway Minister Piyush Goyal praised the bravery of the policeman on Twitter.

    He wrote: "Courageous work by RPF Constable Anil Kumar, who promptly jumped to the rescue of a commuter crossing the rail tracks to save him from an oncoming train in Mumbai.

    "It is strongly advised to use overbridges to avoid such incidents which may be fatal."
