    Super Mario: Balotelli does it again by stepping in to stop schoolyard bully

    The Sun reports today that the Azzurri star helped a young Blues fan who was being picked by a classmate – by driving to the school and confronting the bully himself.

    The papers writes: “The striker questioned why the young lad was playing truant with his mum outside the club’s Carrington training ground rather than attending school.

    “After the fan revealed that he was being bullied, Mario drove the youngster and his mum over to the school in question and demanded a meeting with the headteacher.

    Wow! That's a really great story. It's nice to hear when celebrities take time out of their lives to enter the real world to help a child. Very cool.
