C’est renversant! in French

The verb “renverser” means ‘to knock over, to knock down, to overturn…”
But we use the participe présent “renversant” to say ‘amazing, staggering’.

Cette nouvelle est renversante: This news is unbelievable.
Viens voir, c’est renversant! have a look, it is amazing!

Because of its meaning, we also use it in a funny way for things that are down or knocked down.
When someone falls: c’est renversant!
When a thing is upside down: c’est renversant!
