We've all been there – sipping a pint in your local pub waiting for that bloke to finish playing pool so you can get a game.
But what would you do if the guy sending you potty was none other than Sergio Aguero
Manchester City's 38million striker isn't the kind of person you'd expect to bump into as you enjoy a post-work drink down your boozer.
Yet, at just before 6pm yesterday, that's exactly what happened in the Woodley Arms in Stockport.

Rumours had been circulating that the Argentina ace was going to pop in and around 100 locals got to see him up close.
City boss Roberto Mancini doesn't need to worry about Aguero's post-training habits, however. His visit was part of an advert being filmed by his sponsors Puma.
The player has already spent time being filmed on an all-weather pitch at a nearby sports centre before heading for his game of pool.

Aguero – who scored the winner in Monday's Manchester derby at Old Trafford – was brilliant with the City fans, signing autographs and posing for pictures before driving away in his Aston Martin Vanquish.
Jamie Taylor, manager of the Woodley Arms (and a confesses United fan), was delighted with his pub being used for the event.
He told the Manchester Evening News: 'You couldn’t say No, could you He’s a great player and I was as giddy as anyone when he came through the door.
