This is the shocking moment a former American football player nicknamed "Beast Mode" narrowly dodged a bus while doing a wheelie on a bike.

Marshawn Lynch, notorious for his way of dealing with the media, was seen riding a BMX bike complete with a Skittles-themed messenger bag.

And the retired Seattle Seahawks player, 30, did not take kindly to onlookers filming him in Paisley, Renfrewshire, today.

The former running back, who helped his team win the Super Bowl in 2014, was in the town filming at the Houston Kiltmakers shop.

This year's Super Bowl is due to be held in Houston, Texas, and it is believed the shop was chosen for its shared name.

In the video, Lynch can be seen performing a wheelie down the High Street in Paisley before swerving out of the way of an oncoming bus.

Robert Hampson, 37, from Paisley, filmed the star after spotting him in a vehicle outside the shop.

He said: "I was just walking down the High Street when I spotted this big people carrier outside a shop.

"I wanted to hang around and see who it was, and I couldn't believe it when I saw that it was Marshawn Lynch.

"He must have been filming something with the kilt shop, but he was riding about on the BMX outside and then I filmed him doing the wheelie.

"I'm a big fan of the National Football League (NFL) and it's crazy that a player like him was in Paisley.

"He wasn't too happy with people filming him, though."

Staff at Houston Kiltmakers confirmed that Lynch was filming something for the upcoming Super Bowl.

A worker said: "I'm not entirely sure what was happening today but I gather he was filming something for the Super Bowl.

"The Super Bowl is in Houston, Texas, this year and our shop is called Houston Kiltmakers.

"It's a bit strange that he came all the way to Paisley, admittedly.

"We didn't really get a chance to speak to him, he mostly kept himself to himself. I know he was filming outside as well.

"Having him here isn't something I expected to see when I came into work this morning."
