Combination in the Rook Ending

Prokop F.J., 1924
It is not common to see a genuine combination in the Rook endings. In this type of endings we can see long-term fight for some well-known theoretically won position when stronger site employs the technique and wins.
In the diagram position White situation is not much too appealing, however, White is to move and wins. His unexpected sacrifice of Rook will change the character of ending completely.
