'Bad boy' Balotelli gives up smoking
Balotelli gave up the habit after seeing adverts publicising the recent NHS-backed anti-smoking campaign Stoptober, which urged people to quit the habit for October.
"The campaign is supported by IAN WRIGHT and when manager Roberto Mancini told Mario about it, it was just the incentive he needed to get him to make the effort and stop," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.
"Even though October's over, Mario's keeping it up," he added. (ANI)
