Chelsea midfielder, Tiemoue Bakayoko was held at gunpoint by police in a case of mistaken identity in Milan, shocking footage shows.

A video clip has been posted of the Frenchman out in Milan and being searched by officers in the middle of the street on social media.

Cars are stopped in the road, with officers pointing guns in the direction of a vehicle. Bakayoko, wearing a green shirt and black hat, is pressed against a police car and being searched vigorously by an officer.

There then appears to be a conversation where one officer informs the colleague conducting the search that Bakayoko is a football player, realising that they have got the wrong suspect.

Bakayoko appears to be free to go by the time the passerby stops filming but the incident led to plenty of uproar on social media.

The former Monaco player spent last season on loan at AC Milan, his second stint for the Rossoneri, and played 14 times in Serie A as the San Siro club won a first Scudetto for 11 years on the final day.
