After his side was beaten 4-2 by Manchester City on Saturday, Cardiff City midfielder Gary Medel reportedly missed the team bus and traveled home on the train with the Bluebirds fans who had made the trip to the Etihad.
Several astonished Cardiff fans posted photos with Medel, who sat in economy class and mingled with his adoring public all the way back to Wales.

We should add that Medel slumming it in the cheap seats doesn't seem quite so remarkable once you learn that there apparently isn't a first-class carriage option on the Manchester-Cardiff-Milford Haven line. But still, the Chilean has scored some major "cult status" points with this one!
