Manchester City’s trip to Beijing earlier this week may have been a wash out, but a group of the Premier League club’s players ensured it wasn’t a total waste of time as they took the opportunity to squeeze in an epic game of football tennis atop the Great Wall of China.

Before heading down to Shenzhen, where they will take on Borussia Dortmund in an exhibition game tonight, Sergio Aguero, Kelechi Iheanacho, Samir Nasri and James Horsfield enjoyed a set on top of one of the wonders of the world.

The players played on as a swarm of dragonflies descended on the makeshift court, with a storm approaching the capital, to finish the match in time; Nasri and Horsfield thrashed strikers Aguero and Iheanacho 7-2.
