WATCH - Legendary jockey AP McCoy pleads son to 'slow down' as he shows racing potential on quad bike
Anthony McCoy had a relentless appetite for danger during his unparalleled career as a jumps jockey, and it seems four-year-old son Archie is a chip off the old block.
The 20-time Champion Jockey was videoed by wife Chanelle yelling at his boy to 'slow down' as he raced away on a quad bike.
The video was accompanied by a tweet from Chanelle saying McCoy's pleas were a case of the 'pot calling the kettle black' and signed off with #likefatherlikeson.
McCoy endured dozens of injuries during his garlanded career including: Broken middle and lower vertebrae, both shoulder blades, both collarbones, ribs, ankle, cheekbones, wrist and ankle.
Son Archie underwent heart surgery as a seven-month old baby in 2014 at the Portland Hospital in London, with McCoy spending several days at his bedside in the run-up to that year's Cheltenham Festival.

Wife Chanelle has previously expressed concerns that Archie and 10-year-old daughter Eve would follow in their father's footsteps and pursue a life in the saddle.
Speaking to TV Now magazine, she said: “I would be really worried if my son Archie wanted to be a jump jockey.
“AP would have about 70 injuries a year and there’s a lot of hospital visits so I know what’s ahead as a jump jockey.
“Look, if he does, you just go with it and embrace it but I’d hate to go through all that worry again, that I did over the last few years.
“It’s nice not to have that feeling of worry or anxiety when you get a phone call to say your husband has been brought to hospital in an ambulance.”
