Mario Balotelli filmed his goal celebration and uploaded it to Instagram Live after opening the scoring in Marseille’s 2-0 win over Saint-Étienne on Sunday.
Having buried a magnificent bicycle kick from a corner in the 11th minute, Balotelli went to get his phone from a cameraman at the Stade Vélodrome.

The Italian then beckoned his team-mates over and recorded their celebrations as they gathered round him, starting a live video on Instagram Stories.
Florian Thauvin, whose corner Balotelli scored from, added a penalty soon after to seal the win that leaves Rudi Garcia’s side 4th in Ligue 1.

Balotelli was notorious for his wacky antics during his time in the English Premier League at Manchester City and Liverpool.
He enjoyed a prolific first couple of seasons in France playing for Nice before falling out of favour last season under Patrick Vieira.
However, his move to Marseille appears to have revitalised him – he has scored three goals in his first four games.
