Barcelona welcome Arnold Schwarzenegger to Camp Nou

In a very literal sense, celebrity visitors really don't get much bigger than the VIP Barcelona welcomed to the Camp Nou on Saturday morning.

In town for a bodybuilding event, Arnold Schwarzenegger took a few hours out of his busy schedule to enjoy a VIP tour around Barca's famous old stadium before taking a look around the Catalan club's museum.

Schwarzenegger was also presented with a personalised Barca shirt by club executive Carles Vilarrubi, though his name barely fit across the shoulders.

"Barca has an amazing history, and the football they play is incredible," the "Terminator" star and former California governor told the club website.

"There are so many talented players here at the Camp Nou, and seeing all the trophies and videos of these great victories is a real joy."

He then demanded to have Vilarrubi's clothes, boots and motorcycle before screeching out of town in a cloud of smoke. (OK, not really!)
