Anthony Joshua struggles to stay upright while ice skating and clings to a penguin to keep it from falling


ANTHONY JOSHUA proved the old adage “the fatter you are, the harder you fall” after struggling to stay upright while ice skating.

The 6-foot-5 British boxing star fighter had to use the safety stand while taking his five-year-old son JJ to Lapland in the UK with a group of his friends.

Like many rookies on the rink, the former heavyweight champion needed the children’s little penguin balancing aid to keep him from falling.

AJ stumbled as he crept through the crowd of other children and parents.

He was wearing a rented pair of bright orange ice skates available for hire at the Ascot attraction in Berkshire.

And he pretty much managed to avoid taking a KO-style fall as he tried to take cover from the wall to the side.

He then posed for photos alongside some Lapland UK staff against a Christmas themed backdrop.

The Watford ring star shares custody of JJ with his former partner Nicole Osbourne, who is a dance teacher and yoga teacher.

AJ lost his heavyweight titles to Ukrainian star Oleksandr Usyk in September.

The Briton has triggered a rematch clause and the return fight is now expected to take place before the end of April.

A win for AJ could set up a long-awaited showdown with Tyson Fury, although the Gypsy King will have to defend his WBC crown against fellow Briton Dillion Whyte first in a bout set to take place in the spring.
