A video of Pep Guardiola being chased by a shouting fan on a bike in the centre of Manchester is doing the rounds on social media. You can see that moment below.
Seven weeks after leading his team to a Premier League title on the final day, Manchester City manager Guardiola has returned to the North West ahead of their first day of pre-season training on Monday.
And the former Barcelona boss has wasted no time in getting back into the swing of city life.
He was spotted cycling through the centre of Manchester over the weekend by an overeager fan, who proceeded to chase after Guardiola in the hope of getting a picture with the Spaniard.
In the clip uploaded to TikTok, the man filmed himself chasing the 51-year-old down a narrow alleyway near Parsonage Gardens in Manchester.
He could be heard saying: "Aye Pep, let me get a picture bro! Yo! My man's smokin' off, yo! Aye Pep! Yo, nah nah you man need to see this! Oh my god!"
After finally catching up with the Manchester City manager, who looked far from impressed with the man's actions, Guardiola eventually got off his bike and refused a fist-pump with the person involved.
"Yo Pep! Let me get a picture, why you running off bro, let me get a picture bro!" said the fan. "Let me get a picture, I just want a picture! I just want a picture, yo my g!"
The Spaniard eventually said "okay" before going into a nearby building.
It is unclear when the footage was taken, but the video was posted to TikTok in the early hours of Monday morning.
Guardiola will now spend a week in Manchester before spending the rest of pre-season on a tour of the United States, which begins next weekend.
City will play Mexican side Club América and Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich before facing Liverpool in the Community Shield on Saturday 30 July.
They will then kick-start their Premier League campaign on August 7 against West Ham.
