A Port Elizabeth soccer fan had a tattoo of Julius Malema inked on his backside after losing a bet over which team would win the Champions League final.

Mark Dorward, a Bayern Munich fan, never for a moment thought his team would let him down on Saturday but when they lost the penalty shootout he conceded his bet, the Herald Online reported on Thursday.

His friend Tom Pullen, a restaurant owner, who was rooting for the victorious Chelsea, watched with glee as his pal had his butt inked -- in the restaurant after the match.

"You know how these things are. We were sitting, it must have been about 1am, at the bar, and we'd been drinking brandy," said Dorward.

"Basically, Tom's a Chelsea fan, and I'm for anyone but Chelsea. We made a bet that whoever backed the wrong team had to get a tattoo on his ass.”

The image of Julius Malema's face was taken from a Zapiro cartoon. The cartoonist joined in the fun by asking fans on his website which Malema face they thought the punters should use.

Immediately after his team lost Dorward went to the temporary tattoo booth set up in the restaurant.

"The rest, as they say, is history,” he said.
