And Balotelli effortlessly performed with some keepy-uppies with a mini-ball on his roof.

The 36-cap Italy striker – evidently sponsored by PUMA – captioned his short clip: “The result of the Combination of @puma shoes @puma outfit @puma mini ball and a funny @pumafootball athlete.”

Balotelli is currently abiding by Italy’s strict lockdown rules, having last played in Brescia’s 3-0 loss at Sassuolo on March 9.

Italy declared a national state of emergency over coronavirus in January – with a country-wide lockdown only coming into effect on March 9 – the day of Super Mario’s last game.

Since then, Italy – and Serie A action – has been put on hold.


Balotelli has endured something of a journeyman’s career having burst onto the scene with Inter Milan in 2007, aged just 17.

Controversy-ridden spells at Man City, AC Milan, Liverpool, Nice and Marseille followed, before he settled at Brescia for the 2019-20 season.

Balotelli has scored five times in 19 Serie A games, with one red card to his name, to boot.

The Italian has been in trouble frequently in the past – most-notably after his house in Manchester caught fire after he set off fireworks in the bathroom.

Amongst numerous other incidents, Balotelli was once fined after being caught driving his Ferrari at up to 125mph in a road race against a friend’s Lamborghini.

And Brescia – owned by former Leeds chairman Massimo Cellino – were forced to step in earlier this week to prevent another potential blunder.

Balotelli had hoped to broadcast a live Instagram chat with porn star Rocco Siffredi – who has starred in over 1,300 X-rated films during his career.
