Ottawa: In a promotional clip for an upcoming award show, Italian footballer Mario Balotelli is seen speaking to the camera at Milan`s training ground when a zombie suddenly appears, according to reports.

According to Yahoo News Canada, Balotelli keeps his cool as the growling monster approaches him.

He has to act quick if he wants to save himself and he does by employing an unconventional zombie defense tactic: ripping off its hair, the report said.

Balotelli`s inventive move works though, and the zombie stumbles away in pain while Mario watches with the same impassive expression he has after scoring a goal, the report added.

The player has regularly been the topic of news reports with his interesting moves.
