This video of Elton John falling off a chair will raise your Christmas spirit by roughly A MILLION PER CENT

He’s still standing – oh, wait, no.

World-famous charity fundraiser. Global multi-platinum singer. Prestigious party-thrower. There are many things Elton John is, but ‘good at sitting on chairs’ he is not.

Yep, TMZ snapped up this video of the I’m Still Standing snigger hit-maker toppling off his canvas chair at a charity tennis match held in London’s Royal Albert Hall yesterday.

The star was at Mylan World Team Tennis Smash Hits event to raise money for his Aids Foundation, where Tim Henman actually managed to WIN a match against Andy Roddick.

Elton, 67, had**** stood up to cheer on his team****, but when he went to sit back down again the chair tipped over, leaving him sprawling on the floor with his legs in the air like a beetle.

The commentator didn’t really know how to react, so just stood there watching as some helpful blokes got a blushing Elton back on his feet.

Actual LOL.
