The Chinese legend was in attendance as City announced a new tie-up with Richard Mille Watches.

Roberto Mancini and his squad presented Chan with a signed shirt printed with "Champions 12" on the back before inviting him to address the Chinese public.

"From now on, yes (I am a fan)," said the Rush Hour star.

"When I was young, I was a fan of a football team. Sometimes I support Hong Kong, sometimes England, but from now on, because of my friends, I will support Manchester City."

He added: "We want to thank Manchester City for coming to China.

"I believe there's a billion fans and they have given us the chance to learn about football and I really hope the young children go and play because it is good for their health."
