MADRID, March 8 (Reuters) - A prankster pretending to be Oscar-winning American actor Nicolas Cage fooled Real Madrid into thinking he was the real thing and enjoyed red carpet treatment at this week's Champions League match against AS Roma.
The lookalike, Italian television presenter Paolo Calabresi, watched Wednesday's game from the directors' viewing area at the Bernabeu and was taken into the team dressing room afterwards, Spanish sports daily Marca reported on Saturday. He was even photographed being presented with a personalised Real shirt by club president Ramon Calderon.
Priceless. No one else is as deserving of this trickery than that douchebag Calderon.
Of course I'm rooting for the Arse to win the Champions League - but I've got a soft spot for Roma. A quarterfinal tie of Arsenal-Roma would be mind-blowing. Two of the most attack-minded teams in Europe going at it...shit. Can't wait for the draw on Friday...
