Watch: Thomas Muller dodges media interviews by receiving phone call....on his passport
After stepping off a flight, facing the media is probably not high on the agenda of a professional footballer.
It certainly was not for Bayern Munich and Germany striker Thomas Muller who came up with a brilliant, innovative way to avoid exchanging words with waiting journalists.
Muller, known for being a bit of a prankster, waltzed out at arrivals full of smiles as he chatted away with his hand held up to his ear. The only issue is that the German wasn't holding a mobile phone - he was talking into his passport.
Muller 1 Media 0.
