Freak Sydney storms: is this photo fake or for real?

IMAGE OF THE DAY: Check out this photo of a bloke being blown sideways at Sydney’s Bondi Beach during the wild weather. Is it legit?

As crazy weather lashed Sydney and large swathes of the NSW coastline today, we came across this eye-popping photo on Getty Images.

Its description on the Getty website reads:

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – APRIL 21: A man held by strong winds poses at Bondi beach on April 21, 2015 in Sydney, Australia. A second day of damaging winds and heavy rain have hit the New South Wales coast, downing powerlines, cutting power to homes and causing delays for traffic and public transport.

Sydney storm

Could it be faked? Possibly; but Getty photographers are not ones for being duped and winds have been powering through at over 130kph across the coastline today.

We call it ‘For real’. What do you think?
