Video: Mario Balotelli takes selfie after scoring for Marseille

Balotelli

Ghanaian born Italian Mario Balotelli made the headlines in the French Ligue 1 as he grabbed his smartphone and took a selfie after scoring against Olympique Marseille on Sunday.

 Balotelli scored in the 12th minute to increase his goal tally to four goals in six appearances at Olympique Marseille.

And what a strike it was. 'Super Mario' met Florian Thauvin's in-swinging corner with an acrobatic volley to send the Stade Velodrome into a frenzy.

And the former Inter Milan and AC Milan striker celebrated the goal by taking a selfie with his teammate.

Balotelli then brilliantly filmed his ecstatic colleagues jumping up and down around him while he had a huge smile plastered across his face.

Once he got the footage he wanted, the former Manchester City and Liverpool striker uploaded the video to his Instagram page for his 8.3million fans to watch instantly.

However, Balotelli isn't the first to record himself with a phone celebrating.

Roma legend Francesco Totti celebrated an equaliser against Lazio in 2015 by grabbing his phone to capture the moment up close.

The result on Sunday meant Marseille leapfrogged Saint Etienne to move into fourth after they added another goal to make it 2-0 in the south of France.
