Not a day goes by where Mario Balotelli isn’t involved in a ridiculous story.
Today, Conservative MP Guy Opperman swore he had seen the Liverpool striker in the House of Commons during a debate and he took to Twitter to let everyone know:
Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has popped in to Commons Gallery to watch the Drug Policy debate -wearing sharp suit, pink shirt &a poppy
— Guy Opperman MP (@GuyOpperman) October 30, 2014
It even sparked this tweet from Daily Express political reporter Owen Bennett who took his understandably tired eyes from the debate to his phone to ask Balotelli:
. @FinallyMario in the interests of all of us in the press gallery with bad eyesight…can you say if you're in the House of Commons?!

But it took Sun political editor Tom Newton-Dunn to rain on everyone’s parade by confirming Balotelli was actually a 55-year-old dancer:
Can confirm the bloke with the yellow mohican in the Commons gallery is not Mario Balotelli. He's a 55-yr-old dancer. Sorry, @GuyOppermanMP

And the tweet of the day came from Daily Telegraph news editor Mark Hughes who got a selfie of the Balotelli lookalike:

It turns out his name is Ken Hinds – chairman of Haringey stop and search monitoring group.
