A naked Australian man was left red-faced after getting stuck in a washing machine during a game of hide and seek, after police had to grease him up with olive oil to get him out.

The man clambered into the top-loader machine on Saturday afternoon at his home north of Melbourne, aiming to surprise his girlfriend when she got home.

But he became wedged, sparking a delicate rescue effort.

“He was trying to surprise his missus and became stuck,” Sergeant Tim Gleeson told the Herald Sun after police, firefighters, paramedics, and a local search and rescue squad used olive oil to manoeuvre the man out of his predicament.

“They greased him up until he was free,” Sgt Gleeson added.

“It was just a game gone wrong. It would be fair to say the gentleman was very embarrassed,” added Sergeant Michelle De Araugo.
