Nicolas Cage lookalike takes Real Madrid for a ride

MADRID, March 8 (Reuters) - A prankster pretending to be Oscar-winning American actor Nicolas Cage fooled Real Madrid into thinking he was the real thing and enjoyed red carpet treatment at this week's Champions League match against AS Roma.

The lookalike, Italian television presenter Paolo Calabresi, watched Wednesday's game from the directors' viewing area at the Bernabeu and was taken into the team dressing room afterwards, Spanish sports daily Marca reported on Saturday.

He was even photographed being presented with a personalised Real shirt by club president Ramon Calderon.

Calabresi organised the stunt by using the name of an agency in the United States that had recently arranged a similar meeting at the Bernabeu for another actor, Sylvester Stallone.

Roma won the last-16, second-leg tie 2-1 to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 4-2 aggregate victory. (Reporting by Mark Elkington; Editing by Sonia Oxley)

I don't have any pictures, but I don't think that he looked too much like Nicholas Cage. I saw it on the news and Real Madrid's President was presenting him with a personalised club shirt. Good for him though. He took his chance .
