Stallone selfie on 'Rocky' steps

A group of tourists who ran up the "Rocky" steps in Philadelphia got a knockout photo at the top - a selfie with Rocky himself.

Peter Rowe said he and two college friends had just finished racing up the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps on Saturday when they saw Sylvester Stallone.

Stallone joked that the three friends were so fast they were making him look bad and then he posed for a selfie with them, Mr Rowe said.

Stallone made the Art Museum steps famous in his first turn as fictional boxer Rocky Balboa, who used them in his training regimen.

Stallone is in Philadelphia for the shooting of Creed, the latest instalment in the series. It stars Michael B Jordan as the grandson of early Rocky foe Apollo Creed.
