NFL star Chris Carson pulled off an incredible feat of athleticism when starring for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night – but got a telling off from his MOTHER.

The running back, 24, attempted to hurdle his defender but caught his ankle on Eric Reid's shoulder pad and was sent spinning into the air.

But while most people would completely lose their balance and fall to the ground, Carson was able to regain his balance and land on his feet.

More incredible still, Carson actually got back to his feet and continued fighting forward for more yards.

It was a stunning play for the second-year star, who has become the Seahawks' top runner this season.

Carson added his fourth touchdown of the season as Seattle beat the Carolina Panthers 30-27 on Sunday night.

Fans went wild for the flip on social media.

One asked if Carson was "secretly Spiderman?" and another said it was "straight out of a comic book".

But not everyone was impressed with his moves – his mother having words with him after the game.

He said: "She told me to stay on the ground. I gave her a heart attack on that jump.

"So it'll probably be my last time jumping."
