Football stars have told how they were pulled over by a police car with sirens blaring - so they could sign autographs for a besotted WPC.
German Bundesliga side Hamburger SV were in the team coach on the way to a match when they were forced off the motorway by traffic cops.
But instead of a ticket, all they got was a demand from a blonde female officer for hunky star striker Mladen Petric's autograph.
"All the other players were smiling. I thought they were taking the p***, so I didn't move at first," he said.
"Eventually I realised they really wanted me to go to the front. When I got there a young policewoman told me she was a big fan of mine, got out her autograph book and asked for my autograph," said Petric.
The bizarre demand emerged when the club Tweeted the encounter with a picture after the match.
"Our team bus stopped by the police because cop wanted an autograph," they said on Twitter.
