You know what they say about meeting your idols - it's never quite like you imagine it, especially when said idol turns out to be an entirely different person altogether.

Three days ago, Robbie Williams and his dad were taking a leisurely jaunt up a German mountain when they just happened upon their idol. Robbie posted the below to Instagram, captioned "The Hand of God meets God. I wish he was playing this year's Soccer Aid! #Maradona."

According to Heatworld, it's not Maradona at all, rather a 49-year-old German by the name of Abi Atici. Apparently, Abi has been working as a Maradona impersonator for over two decades, so no wonder Robbie was suckered in.

Speaking to the press, he said: "When I was in Ischgl, Robbie was playing a concert. I was waiting to take the ski lift to the top of the mountain. Suddenly Robbie jumped out of a van, gave me a hug and said, 'I love you'. I answered, 'I love you too!' Robbie then gave me a kiss on the cheek. You know I now can't wash my cheek as all women want a kiss on the same spot he kissed me. I don't just have the hand of God, I now have the cheek of God... I never thought such a world famous star would fall for my double act. It is sensational. It all happened so quickly. I will never forget that day!"

No comment from Robbie as yet.
