In the latest of magical moments in the life and times of Mario Balotelli, the Milan hitman has ordered a life-sized statue of himself for his home in Brescia. You really can't make this shit up. Apparently he has commissioned local artist Livio Scarpella to 'immortalise' him in platinum and bronze. Italian media speculates that the statue will replicate the above photo, in which Balotelli scored against Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-final, and promptly removed his shirt and flexed. Always true to form.
