Eventually, the elements won and sent his bike flying down the empty main road in Osaka, on the island of Honshu.

The heroic employee in full Domino’s tracksuit tried to pick it up but the video ended as he lost his footing again.

At least 11 have been killed and more than 300 injured since typhoon Jebi made landfall on Tuesday morning.

Winds ripped the roofs off buildings, tossed cars onto their sides and flooded one of Japan’s busiest airports.

Police said at least five others died elsewhere in the prefecture after being hit by flying objects or falling from their apartments.

Five were killed and more than 400 hurt when a magnitude-6.1 quake struck the city of Osaka on June 18.

A prolonged heatwave in which temperatures reached 41C was blamed for at least 116 deaths throughout July.

And another magnitude-6.7 quake hit the island of Hokkaido today, leaving deep gashes in roads, triggering landslides and knocking out power.
