Bundesliga reporter Archie Rhind-Tutt filmed himself trying out the slide at Wolfsburg’s Volkswagen Arena, and he was not impressed with the experience.

He has to leverage himself downwards using his legs, with very little – if any – actual sliding involved.

Wolfsburg are one of only two teams still unbeaten in Germany’s top flight so far this season, lying 4th with five wins and six draws from eleven matches.
