A scuba Santa Claus in South Korea has brought Christmas cheer to the visitors of an aquarium in Seoul.

A diver dressed as Santa made his appearance in the large tank where he fed and swam around with about 20,000 sardines.

The crowd of shiny silver sardines followed the feed in Santa's hands, forming various shapes as they swam around the tank.

The aquarium says it aims to further marine education and oceanographic research in south Korea.
