Mario Balotelli scores a bicycle kick, brought out his iPhone and went straight live on his Instagram story… check it out 

It was a brilliant overhead kick that deserved a special celebration — and, as ever, Mario Balotelli did not disappoint.

Accustomed to making headlines, Balotelli found an innovative way to once again draw attention to himself by filming his goal celebration and uploading it to his Instagram story.

The Italy striker, 28, had scored a stunning overhead kick Sunday for Marseille to give his side the lead against Saint-Etienne — his team would go on to win the Ligue 1 match 2-0 — and proceeded to collect his phone from a cameraman pitchside.


Balotelli’s goal is the former Manchester City and Liverpool striker’s fourth in six games since joining Marseille from Nice in January.

He isn’t the only player to take a selfie during a game.

Former Roma and Italy striker Francesco Totti took a picture of himself celebrating after scoring against Lazio in the Rome derby in 2015.
