London: Sir Paul McCartney saved a woman by pushing her out of the way of a speeding cyclist.

The man hurled abuse as he narrowly missed them at traffic lights in London’s Oxford Street.

"I always get dropped off a few streets from my offices in Soho so I can have a bit of a walk and get ready for the day," a news daily quoted Beatles legend Macca as saying.

"I was crossing the road when I saw this bike courier careering towards us.”

"I grabbed this woman next to me and threw her out the way. He wasn’t slowing down, he was just swearing at me telling me to ``eff off``. He was going so fast he had no idea who I was.”

"I started screaming ``You’re big and clever, aren’t you? Oh you’re so clever``.

"I was effing and blinding and realised everyone was watching. He could have seriously hurt her and others. He was a menace," said Macca.
