She nervously paddled away before the deadly fish made enough space for her to dart back to safety unimpeded as she repeatedly checks over her shoulder.

Footage of the close call was filmed on the Kite Beach in Dubai which is a popular tourist hotspot for watersports.

The tourist revisited Kite Beach after the shark sighting and said that no others were spotted that day.

The holidaymaker said: ‘We waited and waited for the shark, and nothing came. However they are patrolling the shore.’
