VIDEO: Priest suspended after saying mass while riding around on a hoverboard

A priest riding a hoverboard isn't something you'll see every day.

Cheers and applause rang out as he greeted the congregation and sang a Christmas song on the wheelie device - but not everyone saw the funny side.

Unfortunately he's been suspended from his post at Our Lady of Miraculous Medal in Biñan Parish, Philippines, where he gave the sermon on Christmas Eve.

The Diocese of San Pablo said it was a violation of the "highest form of worship".

It added in a statement on Facebook: "The Eucharist demands utmost respect and reverence."

Hopefully he's reinstated quickly and once the anger subsides, they'll appreciate his hoverboard skills.
