A SPANISH man received a standing ovation for his pole dancing performance on Britain’s Got Talent.
Saulo Sarmiento, 28, made headlines in the UK press after his pole dancing-cum-acrobatic routine saw him swing and spin from a pole attached to the ceiling, without any safety nets.
“The whole nation says YES,” said the headline in The Sun, while the Metro’s read: “Pole dancer Saulo Sarmiento gets pulses racing.”
After his jaw-dropping performance, judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden all rose to their feet to applaud him.
The video of the Spaniard’s audition has been viewed almost five million times.
Saulo has been a gymnast since 13 and travelled around the world to compete.
He then joined the notorious Cirque Du Soleil before setting up his own solo act: Ariel Pole.
