    A South African documentary about a friendship between a diver and an octopus has won a British Academy Film Award - known as a Bafta - at Sunday's ceremony.

    The documentary My Octopus Teacher followed South African free diver Craig Foster as he tracked a young octopus in her den in a kelp forest off the coast of Cape Town for nearly a year.

    The film beat the veteran natural history broadcaster David Attenborough to the best documentary award at the UK's highest status film awards for the British Academy of Film and Television (Bafta).

    Director Pippa Ehrlich was visibly shocked at the announcement and couldn't quite catch her breath.
