But how many of us have actually ever seen someone fall on a banana peel? Are they even that slippery?

Well, as it turns out, they are.

The retired teacher was making his way up a climbing wall at The Foundry in Sheffield when he unknowingly planted his right foot on the peel.

Thankfully, no damage was caused and a ‘baffled’ Euan soon realised it was a peel from a banana he had eaten previously as a snack which had somehow attached to his clothing before falling off.

”I was flabbergasted, dumbfounded and amazed,” Euan joked.
