London: Singer Ronan Keating was left fuming after a man made fun of his height and lifted him up in the air.
The 35-year-old was at the backstage bar at the Isle Of Wight Festival Sunday, when the reveller made fun of him.
However, security guards immediately pushed the prankster out of the VIP area.
"The man was showing off to his mates after they were laughing at Ronan for being small. He always assumed Ronan was a lot taller and caught him unawares by lifting him up in the air for a prank," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
Keating later looked at the funnier side of the incident.
"Not surprisingly Ronan wasn`t happy at first and had a few stern words. After the punter was carted off by security, he saw the funny side. He always thought he was average height," the source added.
