An Indonesian man has reigned victorious, but not unscathed, in a bloody fight to the death with a 23-foot-long python who was blocking the path of two pedestrians.

In a serious case of road impatience which nearly brought Nababan to an early demise, the 37-year-old decided to hurry the snake along with a little roadside fisticuffs.
