Odion Ighalo's mum turned down a chance to join his son in the gym after paying the striker a visit in the heavily equipped facility.
The 32-year-old former Manchester United striker was sweating it out while trying to keep fit in his personal gym with his trainer when his mother showed up.
And when she was asked to join the ex-Super Eagles attacker, she simply rejected the offer adding that her waist would shift in a video her son posted on his Instagram story.
Martina then walked away from the gym while answering a phone call on her way out of that part of the building while her son continued with the routine.
