Mario Balotelli posted his goal celebration to Instagram right as it happened

Marseille striker Mario Balotelli is never shy to do what he wants - and that's exactly what he did Sunday during his team's 2-0 win over Saint-Etienne.

The former Manchester City striker, 28, swept home a remarkable volley for the home side against St-Etienne just 11 minutes into the Ligue 1 game.

No sooner had the ball hit the net than Balotelli was fetching a phone - it turned out to be his phone - that he had stashed with a cameraman behind the goal.

Sanders' 2020 manifesto includes healthcare for all, a $15-an-hour minimum wage and action on climate change. It takes seconds (we don't even need your address) and every dollar helps.

Balotelli opened Instagram and actually uploaded his celebration to his own Instagram Story as it happened.

It is hard to forget Balotelli's famous "why always me" celebration for Manchester City against Manchester United, and he has now added another classic to his collection. From there, he posted a video on Instagram Live of the celebration, selfie style with his teammates and the fans.

In a sporting world where celebrations are becoming increasingly elaborate, this one is clearly going to take some beating.
