Winter Olympics: Swiss skier Fabian Bösch's escalator stunt becomes an internet sensation

Swiss skier Fabian Bösch’s novel approach to riding an escalator has become an internet sensation. 

The 20-year-old Winter Olympics athlete was filmed hanging off the side of the steps as his friends laugh in the background. 

Mr Bösch is not competing until the men’s slopestyle event in Pyeongchang on Sunday but appeared to be keeping himself entertained. 

Sharing the video on Instagram, the caption read: “After 20 years I still couldn’t figure out how these things work! Am I doing it right?” 

The clip has been watched almost 650,000 times since Bösch posted it on Monday.

American ski racer Linsey Vonn shared the footage on Twitter, writing: “I 100 [per cent] want to find this guy and this escalator and try to do this! 

“I think I could get the podium!”
