Austrian World Cup slalom skier Marcel Hirscher had a lucky escape after he narrowly avoided being hit by a local television drone.

The skier was taking part in the Alpine Skiing World Cup slalom race in Madonna di Campiglio in Italy when the drone-mounted camera came crashing few centimeters past him.

Despite the incident, the defending champion managed to come second in the competition just behind the Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen.

The International Ski Federation released a statement on its website apologising for the unfortunate accident.
