Lorenzo Insigne Hilariously Given Tallest Mascot For Napoli's Champions League Game Against Barcelona

Lorenzo Insigne was hilariously given the tallest mascot to walk out with ahead of Napoli's Champions League clash against Barcelona.

The diminutive Italian, who stands at 5ft and 3ins, put his arms around his mascot's neck as the camera panned down Napoli's side before kick-off.
