Play of the day: Kolarov's christmas

Manchester City have got in the festive spirit by releasing a series of Christmas videos involving their first-team squad.

The celebrations kicked off with a typically jovial Mario Balotelli playing around with Christmas crackers, while Micah Richards shared his festive memories with City's official website.

But it is Serbian defender Aleksandar Kolarov who provided the most hilarity with his dead-pan rendition of the Christmas carol 'Jingle Bells'.

An uncompromising player on the pitch, Kolarov shows no signs of a soft side off it as he narrates the song in a deadly serious tone.

As long as he is pitch perfect for Sunday's Manchester derby though, City fans will forgive him for his lack of enthusiasm.
