Class clown: Podolski dumps reporter in swimming pool

There has not been much to smile about so far in the camp of the German national team as they gear up in Italy for the upcoming World Cup to be hosted in Brazil.

Just on Tuesday, Germany had two players from the provisional squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament – Julian Draxler and Benedikt Howedes – involved in a car crash.

In addition to the long list of injured first-team players that still haven’t been able to join practice, Joachim Low & Co. have had to deal with the fallout from Kevin Grosskreutz’s drunken stupor after the German Cup final.

With this cloud of negativity hanging over the German camp, you just knew it was only a matter of time before Lukas Podolski did something silly to lighten the mood.

And sure enough, the team’s resident prankster did just that at the end of Germany’s media day on Sunday, throwing one esteemed reporter into the team resort’s pool.
