Bonucci: 'I'm not a hero'

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci insists he is “not a superhero” after punching an armed mugger.

The Italian international was approached as he was getting into his car outside a Ferrari dealership in Turin, but punched the would-be thief who had a gun pointed to his head.

“A few days ago an unpleasant incident occurred,” wrote Bonucci on his Facebook page.

“I am not a hero, but I simply found myself in the wrong situation at the wrong time.

“It all happened in a matter of seconds and it came from an instinctive reaction and certainly not an attempt to emulate the superheroes you see at the cinema.”
