Russell Crowe is angry. Very angry indeed.

The Australian actor appears to have been travelling with his family over the holidays when he fell foul of some luggage restrictions.

Hoverboards have been a popular present this Christmas but the self-balancing platforms have been mired by safety concerns - mostly that they sometimes have a tendency to ignite.

This has led to many retailers recalling them and airlines banning them from luggage. Only Russell didn't seem to get this memo.

Only that didn't quite work...

Cue more patient explanation...

Oof. That's pretty definitive.
