Kevin-Prince Boateng Relaxes with Drink and Smoke Before Drug Test

Kevin-Prince Boateng waited for a regulation post-match drug test with a beer and a smoke following Schalke's win at Bayer Leverkusen, according to German newspaper Bild (h/t The Daily Mirror's Alex Richards):

A remarkable picture surfaced of KPB looking decidedly relaxed during the wait, which led to a defence from Schalke, as Richards reports:

The picture recently came to light leading to Schalke general manager Horst Heldt having to defend the 26-year-old, signed from AC Milan in August.

According to Heldt, it's common for players to have a beer prior to a doping test as it helps them to give a sample.

Common, perhaps—yet it's hardly an everyday footballing image (not counting the nightclub jaunts, of course).
