Mario Balotelli burns rubber around track on mini-motorbike
Despite once again being overlooked by his country, Mario Balotelli has managed to make his international break as productive as possible.
Indeed, the Italian striker took his mini-motorbike out for a spin at the Nice training ground, racing around the pitch against a friend.
Balotelli whizzed into a early lead after getting a good start out of the blocks, but his opponent then effectively handed the win to him by tumbling from his bike at the very first corner.
High-octane stuff, we're sure you'll agree!
