We all know how annoying it can be when you've barely been parked two minutes and a traffic warden somehow has a ticket on your windscreen before you can even blink.
No matter how much you plead or beg, the traffic warden refuses to give any quarter and you are forced to part with your hard-earned cash to pay the fine.
Samuel Eto'o experienced just that frustration, but rather than laughing off a minor fine the £10m-a-year football megastar appeared to put up quite an argument.
Casually dressed in a black cardigan and white T-shirt with tracksuit bottoms and red hi-top boots, the elite footballer seems keen to worm his way out of the fine.
The Cameroon international has long been among the highest-earning footballers in Europe having raked in around £138,000-a-week with Spanish giants Barcelona, where he spent five years prior to sealing a megabucks move to Italy with Inter Milan in the summer of 2009.
He currently earns a reputed £9.6m-a-season on a five-year contract with the Italian and European champions.
Eto'o was linked with a move to Barcelona's rivals Real Madrid in the January transfer window with the Spaniards desperate to sign a striker.
However, the move was scuppered by Eto'o's wage demands and Madrid instead moved for the cheaper option of Emanuel Adebayor, who wanted only £140,000 per week.
Eto'o has previously been noted for his largesse and last summer at the World Cup in South Africa he spent £900,000 on designer watches for his Cameroon team-mates
