A renowned muscle man who climbs a popular rope to keep in shape at Bondi Beach has blamed a near-death accident on a topless sunbathing beauty. 

Russian Dimitri Moskovich ended up with two broken legs at the weekend after falling from a rope the 48-year-old had climbed so many times before. 

“I was looking at a very nice topless girl and I forgot what I was there for and next thing my legs were completely smashed,” he told the Daily Telegraph while laid up in St Vincent’s Hospital. 

Moskovich, who is well known among Bondi fitness and bodybuilding fanatics, was overwhelmed by an outpouring of support following his accident. 

He told his Facebook friends: “Thank you very very much, My Dear Friends!it it is almost worth breaking my legs for all your wonderful wishes and attention!”
