    Oh my, I’d be tempted to do the same. Not because of calcio, just because he’s Miro;-)

    In Italy football it's a part of our life, of our culture, but I think that the mailman it a stereotype of typical italians. Italians are not a mailman that kiss player's feet, of course there're a lot people who have done the same thing, but there are in minority. I love football but I won't act in the same way if I see a player, and I didn't acted in the same way when I met Pep Guardiola in my city.
