If there's one thing in this world Franck Ribery loves more than football, it's teenage prosti... pulling pranks. Like this one. Bayern Munich returned to training this week in the Italian province of Trentino, and the man who once hijacked and crashed the team bus for laughs pulled one of the oldest tricks in the prankster's handbook.

The Frenchman crouched on all fours behind physio Gianni Bianchi while teammate and mischief-conspirator Diego Contento pushed him. The result: a member of Bayern staff who earns considerably less money than the players was briefly humiliated in front of a crowd in an open training session. Comedy gold.
