The new Chuck Norris

So most of you read the newspaper to work and for you that don't there is a new Chuck Norris and he is in the form of a Gurkha, his name is Sgt Pun. If you know this man give him a high five from everyone in the world. 

Acting Sergeant Dipprasad Pun, 31, ran out of ammunition and at one point had to use the tripod of his machine gun to beat away a fighter climbing the walls of the compound near Babaji in Helmand Province.
The soldier fired more than 400 rounds, launched 17 grenades and detonated a mine to thwart the Taliban assault on his checkpoint last September.
Acting Sgt Pun was on sentry duty when he heard a clinking noise outside the small base.
He initially thought the noise might be a donkey or a cow but soon found it to be rebels digging a trench to lay an improvised explosive device (IED) at the checkpoint's front gate.
He realised at that point that he was completely surrounded and that the Taliban were about to launch a well-planned attempt to overrun the compound.

What a legend and for this he has received the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross. The honour is just one level down from the Victoria Cross.

I read this info from Sky News, if there is any mistakes shoot them, I am only the messanger.
