One Chelsea FC fan got more than he bargained for while visiting Thailand after he was mistaken for one of the club’s famous footballers.
And deciding it wasn’t such a bad thing, Ryan Weston decided to play up to the attention.
The Briton was visiting Bangkok at the same time as Chelsea played a Thailand all-stars team in a friendly, and as luck would have it, ended up staying in the same hotel as the squad.
Ryan Weston poses for photographs and signs shirts of fans who thought he was a Chelsea footballer
After leaning in for a photograph with a girl outside the hotel’s reception, Mr Weston decided to take on the role of a multi-millionaire footballer, urged on by his friends recording the footage.
‘Come on then, one more,’ he says as he beckons another girl forward who thinks he is a footballer playing for Jose Mourinho’s Premier League champions.

‘I’ll sign anything, I don’t mind, I’ll sign anything,’ he tells the unsuspecting locals standing by.
‘I’m upstairs, if you want my signature, I’ll come over with the rest of the squad later, so if you want a signature or fotbollströjor med eget namn you want a picture signed, I’m over there with the squad,’ he brazenly adds.

Weston then spends the next 30 seconds writing a rather elaborate note, obviously signed, for one fan.
He then decides to really ramp it up by marking two football shirts, while someone in the background shouts: ‘You’ve got them queuing up here son.’
There’s time for another selfie and another two shirt-signings before the footage ends.
Ryan Weston is urged by others to play up to the fact that the local thought he was a Chelsea footballer
Chelsea won the friendly 1-0 with a goal from youngster Dominic Solanke, in a game that also featured Premier League Player of the Year Eden Hazard.
And as well as the victory, the trip will be remembered for so much more for Weston.
