Mike Myers looked worlds away from his Austin Powers persona when he posed alongside Rio Ferdinand during the Premier League match between Manchester City and Liverpool FC at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Saturday.
Soccer pundit Rio, 44, shared a photo of himself with movie star Mike, 59, on his Instagram Stories.
Actor Mike is perhaps best known for his role as Austin in 1997’s Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, 1999’s Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, and 2002’s Austin Powers in Goldmember.
The Canadian star wore a gray suit which he paired with a khaki green shirt and tie as he stood next to former footballer Rio.
He was interviewed by Rio for BT Sport before taking a seat in the stands to watch the game in which Manchester City won 4-1 against Liverpool.

It comes after Mike refused to rule out a fourth Austin Powers movie.
He played both the titular comedy parody of the friendly spy James Bond and his nemesis Dr. Evil in three movies and he’s always said he’d reprise the roles, but he has no idea if it ever will.
Speak against Entertainment tonightwhen asked if there will be another movie in the series, he replied, “I don’t know.
“I’m going to put a big, solid, written maybe on there.”
Asking the same question in May, he said, “I can confirm or deny the existence or non-existence of such a project, whether it exists or not.”
When it was suggested that his comment felt “like confirmation,” he told SiriusXM’s Jess Cagle, “It was an unconfirmed confirmation.”
Mike – who also wrote and produced the trilogy – spoke of the possibility of a fourth Austin Powers film in November 2018, admitting it “looked good.”
He told Access online at the time, “Well, you’re going to see Dr. Seeing evil, somewhere in the culture. But the movie, you know, I’ve had three kids under the age of seven. They take a long time to write, they always have. Jay [Roach]been super crazy. He’s currently making a fantastic movie that he’s working on. But… it looks good.’

Mike also previously claimed that he would love to make a fourth film in the franchise, as he explained that the franchise was created as a “tribute” to his father, who passed away in 1991.
He said, “After my father died in 1991, I took stock of his influence on me as a person and his influence on me with comedy in general.
So Austin Powers was a tribute to my dad, who [introduced me to] James Bond, Peter Sellers, The Beatles, The Goodies, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.

“I’d love to do another one, but you just have to see it.
“I was devastated by my father’s death.
‘But to turn that into something that makes people happy is incredibly satisfying.
“It’s those kinds of things you never get used to or get tired of.”
