An alleged mafia chief's appetite for pizza has cost him his freedom.
Police in Naples say they nabbed one of Italy's most-wanted crime bosses after sending an agent dressed as a pizza deliveryman to the door.
The fugitive, Roberto Manganiello, was watching the Napoli-Inter Milan football match with his girlfriend when the operation took place this weekend in Caserta, near Naples.
Manganiello, 35, was unarmed and did not resist arrest.
A fugitive since 2013, Manganiello was being sought for two killings in 2004 that launched a clan feud. Police say he also ran a drug and extortion ring.
Interior minister Angelino Alfano said the arrest was "the result of a high-level investigation" with co-ordination across several agencies.
