A race has taken place between a hare and a tortoise - with the latter coming out on top.

Tortoise and hare race takes place

YouTuber Nick Sina uploaded a clip of the contest, a nod to the famous Aesop's Fable 'The Tortoise and the Hare', in which the slower creature wins by being ''slow and steady'', and, remarkably, it played out the same in real life.

In the race, the hare, who was actually a rabbit on this occasion, took an early lead and looked set to win with ease before it started chilling out far too much.

But after slowing up considerably, the sluggish tortoise kept on at its painstakingly slow pace all the way over the finish line before the lazy bunny could catch up.
