Today we pay homage to perhaps the best penalty taker in the world - Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli has scored eight successive penalties for City and is calmness personified when he steps up to take a spot-kick.

Whether it is in the first few minutes or deep into injury time, his technique continues to baffle goalkeepers at home and in Europe, with Joe Hart admitting the Italian is one of the best he's ever faced from the spot.

So enjoy our compilation of his penalties to date - along with one rare miss in training - and a special Mario infographic detailing his accuracy to date.
