We all know how annoying it can be when you've barely been parked two minutes and a traffic warden somehow has a ticket on your windscreen before you can even blink.
No matter how much you plead or beg, the traffic warden refuses to give any quarter and you are forced to part with your hard-earned cash to pay the fine.
Samuel Eto'o experienced just that frustration, but rather than laughing off a minor fine the £10m-a-year football megastar appeared to put up quite an argument.
A parking fine in Milan costs around 60 euros (around £51) but Eto’o - one of the best paid footballers in Europe - seems to plead with the female traffic warden not to fine him.
With his hands clasped together, Eto’o replicates the gesture that footballers in Italy and Spain often use when asking for leniency from a referee.
But later on he also appears to become frustrated and at one point jabs a finger towards the parking attendant.
Casually dressed in a black cardigan and white T-shirt with tracksuit bottoms and red hi-top boots, the elite footballer seems keen to worm his way out of the fine.
The Cameroon international has long been among the highest-earning footballers in Europe having raked in around £138,000-a-week with Spanish giants Barcelona, where he spent five years prior to sealing a megabucks move to Italy with Inter Milan in the summer of 2009.
He currently earns a reputed £9.6m-a-season on a five-year contract with the Italian and European champions.
