Did AC Milan players really warm-up with a limbo?


When we first saw this video - seemingly showing AC Milan doing the limbo, fencing and dancing minutes before a match - we thought someone had spiked the water at the San Siro.


But it turns out that not all was quite as it seemed ahead of the Serie A match between AC Milan and AS Bari.

That's because the 'players' doing the bizarre and odd stunts are actually footballing lookalikes - hired to help advertise Italian sports newspaper Gazzete dello Sport.

We should have known something was up when we saw what we thought was Gennaro Gattuso ballroom dancing with the referee rather than head-butting him. But it's a funny old game.
During the bizarre warm-up - which has since gone viral online - other player look-a-likes can be seen playing with a frisbee, swimming and reading a newspaper.
