VIVA SPLASH VEGAS, HERMANN! Sky Blues' new star Hreidarsson is a charity sea King.

Byline: Telegraph Reporter

IS that the Devil In Disguise or new Sky Blues' signing Hermann Hreidarsson all at sea posing as Elvis? The 37-year-old defender, nick-named the Hermannator, is a big fan of the King and he's got the white jumpsuit to prove it.

His karaoke versions of his idol's hits are by his own admission terrible but he Just Can't Help Believing he'll improve.

The six-foot-three Icelander has a reputation as a hard man on the pitch but he's big-hearted off it and is an ambassador for a Round Table charity which raises money to fulfil the wishes of children with terminal illness.

So true to his extrovert style he put on the bling, dressed as the King and did a 10-mile sponsored jet-ski along the coast last August. City fans are hoping the player will be their Good Luck Charm too after being on the winning side for his debut last Saturday at the Ricoh.
