Basketball sensation Mamadou N’Diaye dwarfed 6-foot-4 Erling Haaland as he posed with the striking superstar after Manchester City’s match against West Ham on Saturday.
Standing at a towering 2.5 meters, the former UC Irvine player dwarfed Haaland and his teammates during his journey to the London Stadium.
Haaland is one of the tallest players in the Premier League and the combination of his imposing presence and ferocious speed played a crucial role in his record-breaking goalscoring form for Man City last season.
But the Norway international looked small compared to the Senegalese baller, who also dwarfed his 6-foot-4 teammate Ederson.
But the most striking presence in the photo was Bernardo Silva: at 1.80 meters tall, the Portuguese midfielder is almost 60cm shorter than N’Diaye.

The former UC Irvine player made a trip to the London Stadium during a visit to the capital and even won Manuel Akanji’s match shirt
N’Diaye posted a number of photos from his visit to London, even posing with a red telephone booth
All four men posed with beaming smiles as Man City’s players enjoyed their 3-1 comeback win against the Hammers on the road, and N’Diaye enjoyed his holiday in London.
N’Diaye also met with Manuel Akanji, where he picked up the player’s match shirt, before touring the stadium and practicing goalkeeping on the West Ham badge.
The sportsman also shared photos of his sightseeing in the British capital, visiting central London and several museums.
N’Diaye boldly posed next to a red telephone box, with the camera’s clever angles making it appear as if the player was almost as tall as the London street icon.
In reality, telephone boxes in London are 2.45 meters high.

Mamadou N’Diaye last played for Mexican team Correscaminos UAT Victoria (pictured playing for the BIG3 pro-league, 2021)
The star posed for a breathtaking photo with little Formula 1 driver Yuki Tsunoda
Football isn’t the only sport that N’Diaye, who last played for Mexican side Correcaminos UAT Victoria, has taken up and shared on his traveling Instagram.
The player was a delighted visitor at this year’s Miami Grand Prix and watched Max Verstappen beat teammate Sergio Perez at the Miami International Autodrome in May.
N’Diaye previously posed with AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda during a night out in Dubai earlier this year.
There’s a full two feet of distance between the two men, with the diminutive 6-foot-2 driver often finding himself a lump of airy height being teased by his fellow racers.
