Does this guy have the best job in the world?

NEWS Corp is on the spot at the biggest sporting events on the planet - many of them right here in Australia.

Photographer Michael Klein is among the News Corp staff and enjoys the best seats in the house, getting access to the stars most of us can only dream of.

Klein has spent the past month documenting the Australian Open and the Herald Sun Tour - from the men's tennis final watched by millions to following the world's best cyclists tackling Australia's oldest professional stage race.

What a day job.

Here's a selection of his best photos.
