Rome taxi driver speeding while watching Roma game

Taxi driver immortalised in tweet by Rome-based journalist.

"Taxi driver watching the Roma game while driving at 110 kmp/h. And it has just started. Welcome home."

This was the tweet, accompanied by a photograph, posted by Daniel Verdù, correspondent of El Paìs for Italy and the Vatican.

The Spanish journalist was on his way back into Rome from Ciampino airport on 1 December when he noticed the taxi driver appeared to be speeding.

Concerned for his safety Verdù checked the car's speedometer to discover that not only was the taxi driver travelling at 110 kmp/h but he was also watching the Roma game on his cell phone.
