What is Javier Zanetti doing singing on Indonesian Idol?
He has expertly parted hair and is an Inter Milan legend - is there anything Javier Zanetti can't do? Actually, viewers of Indonesian Idol have discovered his one weakness - singing.
On Wednesday Inter Milan arrived in Jakarta to prepare for two friendly matches against Indonesian teams and the side's Argentine-born captain made sure to endear himself to reporters quite quickly.
“It has been a great welcome," Zanetti told reporters after the team touched down in the Indonesian capital. "We’re really happy. It’s the first time I’ve been to this country and it’s a real honour."
With Inter also planning to open their own soccer school in the country, the charm offensive continued with perhaps one of the oddest sights we've seen in a long time - Javier Zanetti singing live on Indonesian Idol last night.
Zanetti appeared alongside teammate Angelo Palombo but stepped up as any captain would when offered to sing, before delivering a rendition of Eros Ramazzotti's 'Più bella cosa'.
You can take a look at his less than sterling efforts in the above clip, but please try to ensure that Zanetti's warblings do not awaken small children nearby or are misunderstood for the sound of two cats having sex.
