Bal's Up In San Antonio!

Could there be a more gut-wrenching, adrenalin pumping, white knuckling experience

By Spotlight

Could there be a more gut-wrenching, adrenalin pumping, white knuckling experience than Manchester City's last-minute-championship-winning-plucking- victory-from-the-jaws-of-defeat-as-the-fat-lady-was-warming-up-on-the-touchline last game of the season?

Well, yes actually, as City and Italy star Mario Balotelli found out recently on a trip to San Antonio. The Sicilian striker took a ride on the resort's famous Slingshot and was catapulted 72 metres into the night air at an incredible 160 kilometres an hour! That's 6G, if you're interested.

Big spending Bal splashed out on a video of himself and his mate during his ascent and as you can see it took him a bit by surprise. The sound isn't very clear but our Spotlight lip-reading team have provided a transcript of what super Mario said.

“ &^$* me! That $%^£”()** of a $%£$%^&. Never $%^££^& $%%£* again! Wow, %%$£$^ the &&%$%$, fantastic. ^&%$$ Ferguson. Oh ^%£*

Who'd have thought that?
