Mario Balotelli playfully practices his kickboxing moves on Cristante at AC Milan training

Ever the mischief-maker, Mario Balotelli was up to some usual messing at Milanello today.

The Milan striker likes nothing more than a bit of horsing around on the training ground, winding up teammates by any means necessary.

Bryan Cristante was today’s victim, as Mad Mario chose the young kid as his playmate for a bit of kickboxing.

With only one condition: only Mario gets to kick.
