IN a stunt sure to further endear British tourists to their Spanish hosts, a crackpot holidaymaker has been filmed smothering suncream all over his body, before slithering head first across a concrete sun terrace into a four-star hotel swimming pool in Benidorm.
A female tourist filmed the dubious japery from her balcony as the man, supposedly from Nottingham, slathered the sun block onto himself before taking a running jump onto his belly and sliding down a pre-watered channel between sun loungers.
Despite being egged on by a bunch of mates and initially celebrating the feat, the boozed-up tourist did not emerge unscathed, as he emerged from the water with his stomach, arms and knees gushing blood.
According to the Daily Mail, video author Kelly Crouch said: “They had been messing around all day but this was definitely the craziest thing I saw.
“It’s the sort of thing that probably only seems like a good idea after an afternoon of drinking.
“You could see them all whooping and cheering. I couldn’t believe he did it. I saw him around the hotel afterwards and he was covered in cuts and bruises to his legs and arms.
“He tried a couple of short ones but then they rubbed him up with suncream thinking it would help with the friction.
“The ground was solid concrete. Even though they covered it in water, it still must have hurt like hell.”
