Justin Bieber scores with Manchester Storm ice hockey team

Pop star Justin Bieber cooled down after heated shows in Manchester by making a surprise appearance at an ice hockey game.

As "unbeliebable" as it may sound, the music sensation put the puck in the back of the net during a practice session with Manchester Storm.

The Toronto Maple Leafs fan was presented with his own Storm jersey and a spot in the locker room by the team's equipment manager who had an inkling he would turn up.

The 22-year-old had asked if he could skate with the team at Silver Blades ice rink in Altrincham on Tuesday and went for a pint with the team afterwards.

It came after the chart-topper walked off stage in Manchester when he asked fans to stop screaming between songs.
