Pic: Xabi Alonso hangs in mid air, possibly on an invisible jet-pack

This is an incredible picture of Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso celebrating a goal for his team against Barcelona by appearing to float in mid air.

We loved the latest instalment of El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona which finished 4-3 in the Catalan's favour. When Real Madrid scored their third goal on Sunday night against Barca, they celebrated wildly as expected. In this excellent Getty snap, Xabi Alonso appears to hover over to his team-mates on what could be an invisible jet-pack. Or an invisible horse.

There have been rumours that Alonso is set for a return to the Premier League, but with this hanging in the air ability, he's bound to be offered a lucrative NBA contract with someone. If ever a picture deserved a caption, surely this is it?
