So, Owen was travelling with his girlfriend Jemma when his partner noticed a distressed woman standing on the edge of the M4 bridge near Chipenham, Wiltshire.

The woman had jumped the M4 safety railings and was facing the busy motorway below. He pulled over to try and slow down the traffic and help her.

"I got to her and started talking to her. She was clearly very upset, so I just talked about anything I could think of with her." - Said the 6 ft 5 inch bouncer.

Apparently the upset woman immediately seemed to calm down after listening to his broad Welsh accent. Michael made sure he held on to her hand to make sure she didn't slip, despite having broken his hand playing.

Two fire engines arrived soon after but Michael held on to hr for a god hour as she was too afraid to climb down.

The police closed the road and parked a lorry underneath the spot just in case she fell off. At Michael's home in Cwamavon, South Wales, his sister Sarah's pride knew no bounds! She said : "I am just so proud of him for his actions, I could just burst with pride, and I know the entire family could too. He has an amazing personality and a huge heart, which is evident from his actions here." May the world have more kind and sensible men like Michael Owen around.
