One of the more creative personalities in the English Premier League has to be Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli who already has some classic stories on this site from shooting fireworks in his bathroom to accumulating huge bar bills.
After last weekend’s 3-2 victory over Southampton to open the Premier League, Balotelli decided to show off his flair for the interesting by playing a prank on a photographer in the tunnel.
As Balotelli approaches her and she snaps a couple of pictures of him, Mario reaches out and steals the extended lens off her camera. Watch as the female camera operator tries to recover it before he flees towards the Manchester City locker room:
