Hilarious video of Ric Flair learning how to ice skate goes viral

WWE legend Ric Flair has been captured on video learning how to ice skate - and the resulting footage is absolutely hilarious.

The iconic former wrestler can be seen struggling with the activity as he loses his balance and falls to the floor.

He then proceeds to move on the ice in a very slow and cautious manner, while holding his wife's hand.

Take a look at the video below:

This comes months after Flair was rushed to the hospital in May due to suffering what was described as a "very serious" medical emergency.

Flair had faced a similar medical scare in 2017. After his intestine ruptured, he was placed in a medically induced coma. His condition was critical and it is believed he was moments from death, having been given a 20 percent chance of survival by doctors.

Fortunately, Flair recovered and just a year later he married his long term girlfriend Wendy Barlow.

Last year, he revealed he had been cleared to get back into the ring, telling The Steve Austin Show:

"I had difficulty doing anything when I still had that bag on my side that was attached to my intestines because it sat right at my waistline and it was hard, but as soon as I got that off, I was back doing 500 free squats.

To me, I just need a goal. Does that make sense? But I finally got the weight back on and then I found myself putting more weight back on than I wanted, so I have to be careful with that, but I’ve been working out. I can do anything, benchpress.

I have to be careful after surgery, the second surgery, for hernia issues. But I literally took it easy. I didn’t do anything. And now I’m full speed ahead.

The guys have cleared me to do anything. I’ve actually been cleared to get knocked down in the ring. I didn’t know if they were going to use me in some capacity and you know the clearances you have to have with the health policy, which is so adamant."
