Mario Balotelli lashed out at a Mediaset cameraman who got too close to the Azzurri star
Mario Balotelli got into an altercation with a cameraman from Italian outlet Mediaset on Sunday after the Azzurri felt that his personal space had been encroached upon.
Balotelli was surrounding by a frenzied group of cameramen, reporters and fans on Sunday in Napoli after Italy, who have qualified for the 2014 World Cup, touched down in Naples before Tuesday night’s final qualifier against Armenia.
As Balotelli struggled to walk through the crowd, one cameraman had his equipment lapped from his grasp after Super Mario felt that the lens was too close.
After striking the video camera, Balotelli then starred at the Mediaset employee to ensure his message was clearly heard.
