After watching numerous people do backflips and dive off the cliffs in Malta, this little dog decided it was time to stop being a spectator and start being a participant.

Clearly a little overheated by the midday sun, this guy decides the humans around him have got the right idea.

So without any hesitation, the dog takes a flying leap into the water below before doggy paddling his way over to the rocks on the edge much to the delight of onlookers.

It appears that the dog was considering his options after seeing one man throwing himself in, but the idea really takes hold when another boy takes a running jump.

The dog follows closely after, holding a pose even Tom Daley would be proud of as he glides through the air into the cool waters.
