Mario Balotelli's famous temper got him in headlines again after he appeared to hit a cameraman as Italy's squad arrived in Naples on Sunday.
The Azzurri made the journey by train from Florence to Naples, where they will play Armenia in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night.
There were hundreds of fans waiting for the squad at the train station and several camera crews.
However, Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset reported Balotelli had struck one of their television cameras and tried to knock it to the ground.
The video footage appears to back up this claim.
It is a particularly unusual gesture considering Mediaset are owned by Milan president Silvio Berlusconi, who is technically Super Mario's boss.
Former Manchester City star Balotelli had already been irritable on Sunday when posting a photograph of a headline in the Gazzetta dello Sport via Twitter: "Balotelli is ill, but will be there in Naples as a symbol against the Camorra (the local Mafia)."
"This is what you say!" Balotelli raged. "I am coming because football is wonderful and everyone should play it where they want, plus there’s a game!!!!"
Balotelli's original Tweet in Italian - note how he shares a picture of the offending article upside down:
Questo lo dite voi! Io vengo perché il calcio e bello e tutti devono giovarlo dove vogliono e poi c'è la partita!!!! pic.twitter.com/fl4dkHlcb0

Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Armenia will be preceded by a training session at a football pitch built on land confiscated from the Camorra – the Neapolitan Mafia.
Given Balotelli has previously been accused of cavorting with criminals in the city, such a comment is the last thing he'd want to hear.
