'Did he jump or did he slip?' that was the question after MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo ended up in a lake at Jerez for the second year in succession.

Lorenzo first leapt into the Jerez lake after his thrilling last lap victory over countryman Dani Pedrosa in the 2010 event - and needed rescuing due to the weight of his wet leathers.

After winning in far more dominant form at the wet 2011 event, Lorenzo once again headed for the lake, but this time he appeared to slip as he ran towards the water - sending him into the lake once again (pictured).

"They said 'yes' so I jumped."
