Wild monkey chases away British tourist exercising in park in Thailand

This is the moment a wild monkey chased away a tourist who was exercising in a park in Thailand.

Fitness coach Max Wyatt, from the UK, was working out in Patong Bay Hill in Phuket on January 12 while a group of the primates rested nearby. He was doing tricep dips when the aggressive monkey suddenly lunged at him and drove him away.

Footage shows the angry simian chasing Max away from the outdoor gym equipment, shocking onlookers with its hostile behaviour.

Max said: ‘Making eye contact with a monkey mid-set is a dangerous game.’
