Footballers by day, rock stars by night – at least that’s what then Werder Bremen team-mates Ailton and Ivan Klasnic fancied themselves as in this 2004 picture!

The Brazilian and his Croatian strike partner, impersonating Brian May and Freddie Mercury respectively, were performing a rendition of the Queen hit I Want to Break Free for their amused team-mates and other onlookers.

In the video for the April 1984-released song, Mercury, May and band-mates John Deacon and Roger Taylor dressed up as housewives in a parody of British soap opera Coronation Street.
