In a news story that nobody predicted today, a couple of real life Penguins have been spotted strolling around the Santiago Bernabeu stadium and it has sparked so much confusion online.
As we all know, Real Madrid have temporarily moved to the Alfredo di Stefano stadium - where the club's Castilla outfit play their home games - as they make significant developments to their iconic home.
The club were granted permission in March last year to begin the major operation and it appears they are making good progress with the structure, although a couple of Penguins may have temporarily halted proceedings.
Here's the footage of the two birds casually walking around the place. What is happening?!

Back in April, Los Blancos shared a video to show fans how the new Santiago Bernabeu Stadium will look after its £500 million revamp and it looks seriously impressive.
It includes a retractable roof and 360-degree video screen, as well as leisure and entertainment facilities that will be introduced as part of the rebuild as well as luxurious private boxes.
The 73-year old stadium will also be extended over 66,000 square metres and it's reported that shops, restaurants and a hotel will be added.
Here's a flavour of what it could look like next year.

Real Madrid have claimed the refurbishment will be completed by October 2022.
Club president Florentino Perez said in 2016, "With this agreement, we will start a process of modernisation and transformation that will convert the stadium into an avant-garde architectural icon.
"This stadium will act as an economic and touristic invigorator and will contribute to strengthening the image of our city."
