A worker at London's Bank station has made quite a name for himself with his travel updates for passengers which he delivers in the style of world-famous ring announcer Michael Buffer, as shown in footage filmed on Thursday.

Hus Ragip, 33, works on the Docklands Light Railway platform at Bank and has been wowing the crowds with his exaggerated impersonations of Buffer as trains pull up alongside the platform.

Footage shows Ragip introducing a subway train as "600 tonnes of pure steel" and "always on time" as delighted commuters listen on.

Buffer himself might have to watch out as it has been reported that Ragip could be in line for work at the World Boxing Super Series.
