Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was left stunned in a pre-match press conference when a journalist told him that defender Benjamin Mendy was in Hong Kong.
The French full-back posted on social media platform Instagram that he was at Hong Kong International Airport and when that was brought to Guardiola's attention, the manager signalled his surprise by swearing live on camera.
On reporter's inquiry about Mendy, who is currently recovering from a knee ligament injury that has sidelined him since November, Guardiola laughed at the report and even queried a club press officer to see if he had any ideas.
Guardiola replied, "Well before, he said 'I'm going one day to Paris'...OK, but Hong Kong is far away."
He also added, "I have to install Instagram and my account."
