Manchester City's injury-ravaged defender Micah Richards had club staff sweating when he played a prank on them.
Richards slipped whilst filming a television advert and faked an injury when he next sees the official photographers.
Along with CityTV staff, Richards decides to tell photographers Sharon Latham and Jane Farquhar that he pulled a hamstring whilst performing a move for the cameras.
Understandably, the pair look nervously on, knowing that injuring one of City's star men would not sit well with the club.
Richards - who can operate at right-back or centre-half - has already missed several games this season with a hamstring injury and the photographers will be as relieved as anyone that the injury was a hoax.
The 25-year-old was a regular under Roberto Mancini when City won their first Premier League crown, although he fell behind Pablo Zabaleta last season.
Zabaleta had his most impressive season to date last term and has carried his impressive form into this season.
With competition for England World Cup spots in the form of Glen Johnson and Kyle Walker, Richards will have to first earn a spot in the City team before he can harbour any hopes of travelling to Brazil.
The versatile defender has been linked with moves away from the club in January, with a queue of admirers.
