Balotelli ranked among Time magazine's 100 most influential

Mario Balotelli has packed a lot into his 22 years. The unpredictable Italian has won four league titles, been a Champions League, Coppa Italia and FA Cup winner, a runner-up at Euro 2012 and still found time to light up his house with a firework, give a tramp £1,000 and be out-foxed by a training bib.

We can now add to those achievements his - perhaps surprising - inclusion in Time Magazine's 2013 list of the world's 100 most influential people.

Balotelli joins an illustrious cast and has been selected in the 14-strong "icons" category, alongside the likes of Justin Timberlake, Michelle Obama, Daniel Day-Lewis and Kate Middleton (see the full list here).

The AC Milan striker is the only footballer to make the 100. The only other sports stars on the list are basketball star LeBron James, skier Lindsay Von and tennis player Li Na.
