If Arjen Robben were to be compared to a fictional character some might suggest Pingu due the footballer and penguin's shared love of diving.

However, after Robben and his Bayern Munich team-mates were kicked out of their hotel on Sunday night, the Dutchman will from now on forever be likened to E.T. the extra-terrestrial.

Having been ejected from their hotel due to a fire alarm, the players were sent out into the cold of the Moscow night where they are preparing to face CSKA. In a bid to keep warm, Robben huddled under a blanket.

The image of the footballer quickly spread and it didn't take long for it to be noticed that Robben bore an uncanny resemblance to E.T. Just to make it clear, Memes were quickly mocked up of the Bayern Munich player in a bicycle basket.




Bayern Munich take on CSMKA Moscow tonight, looking for their second win in this season's Champions League.
