The clock strikes 5pm and, right on cue, you hear the doom-laden ding of a WhatsApp message. Billy The Massive Fucking Let Down has pulled out of five-a-side, again. "My third toe's giving me hassle lads. Forgot my boots, as well."
So you desperately need a ringer, but no one wants to play in full office garb. Hang on: know who probably always has a football kit laying nearby? World renowned Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
But he's not going to come cheap.
According to a new German book Football Leaks: The Dirty Business of Football, the Portuguese international charges £920,000 for half a day's work.
This is judged on his work for Saudi telecoms firm Mobily, who hired Ronaldo in 2013 for four-and-a-half hours to undertake a photo-shoot, sign five shirts and plug the service over his social media, according to the Mail.
So: tenners in?
