THIS is the moment Policia Nacional were filmed chasing down a cyclist amid the coronavirus lockdown.
Two officers can be seen patrolling the streets on horseback before one of the officers spots a cyclist travelling past them on the other side of the road.
The agents are then seen bolting towards the cyclist who begins to pick up speed in what seems to be a bid to make an escape.

The footage was shared by the force’s official Twitter account but it was not made clear where it was recorded.
“We are in a critical phase in the fight against COVID-19,” Policia Nacional said.
“We will not stop chasing the irresponsible minority whose behaviour puts everyone at risk.”
