Manchester City footballer Mario Balotelli shocked students and teachers when he wandered into a local school during lunchtime to ask if he could use the toilets.
Roaring up to the school in his luxury white Bentley at 1.30pm on Thursday, blues star Balotelli parked his distinctive vehicle and strolled into the canteen at Xaverian College in Manchester.
The eccentric Italian Balotelli then asked to be pointed to the bathrooms before embarking on an impromptu meet-and-greet.
Accompanied by three friends, Balotelli cruised into the staffroom to speak to surprised teachers, before bowling around the campus as the student supporters of Manchester City cheered.
After 20 minutes, Balotelli climbed back into his Bentley and drove off, leaving stunned students in his wake.
"I'm a City fan so it was amazing to see him," he said. But it was a bit ridiculous for him to come here – you would never expect it to happen."
It’s not the first time that Mario Balotelli has entertained us with his capricious capers.
When the footballer crashed his Audi R8 in 2010, a police pat down uncovered £5,000 in the Balotelli’s back pocket . Asked why he had so much money on him, he simply replied “because I am rich”.
Balotelli and his brother were arrested for driving into an all-female prison in Italy. After questioning by police, they said they had simply gone in because they were “curious”.
The Italian walked also into a pub Christmas 2010 and put £1,000 behind the bar for local drinkers before spending the night on soft drinks. During Midnight Mass at St John's Church, Chorlton he stuffed £200 into the collection box.
