Mr Fry, a doctor from the United Kingdom, is in good spirits and is expected to make a full recovery.

"I turned to the right and saw a shark's head come out of the water with its teeth and I just punched it in the face", he told Channel Nine News.

"Me and my friends have just started surfing, and we saw the YouTube clip of Mick Fanning saying he punched [a shark] in the nose", Fry said.

"If you are watching or listening, Mick, I owe you a beer". A 10-foot shark was later spotted by a rescue helicopter service near the site of the attack.

The 25-year-old said he's not sure what kind of shark it was.

'I instantly just jumped away.

But he turned just in time to see the toothy menace sinking its gnashers into his arm. I punched it in the back'.

He said he shouted out to his mates and then "paddled so hard back to shore".

'It was a nervous swim in.

The Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C., similarly alleged that the US threatened to arrest RT staff and freeze the network's bank accounts.

"It was just pure adrenaline, I genuinely thought I was going to die, like "you're about to be eaten alive by a shark", so everything slowed down, like "get on your board and surf".

Fry escaped the very hectic incident with a few scratches and puncture wounds.

And he revealed how he miraculously managed to escape in one piece with only minor bite marks.

He was driven to a nearby hospital by his companions instead.

Following the attack, Avoca and North Avoca beaches were closed, and authorities began scouring waters for the shark involved the attack.

Lifeguards in the area told the Daily Telegraph the warm water and excess fish would have pulled the shark in closer to shore than it would usually go.

Fry said the shark bit his arm and shoulder after he missed a wave.

"North Avoca and Avoca beaches are now closed following a shark attack", the council said.
