Mattias Oversjo stands only 421st in the table tennis world rankings - but he is currently enjoying an extended '15 minutes of fame' after an astonishing shot he made last week became a web hit.

In a match against fellow Swede Jorgen Persson, Oversjo looked to be completely out of a point when a cross-table shot took a wicked bounce behind him.

However, Oversjo somehow managed to come up with a 'no-look', over-the-shoulder, turn-around shot that flew in for an amazing winner.

At our last check the video had already racked up over 700,000 views on YouTube - which is not bad going for a player that is virtually unknown, even in table tennis circles.

Have a look at the video of the shot below and let us know what you think.
