A German barber unsure whether his client was pop icon Sting decided to play one of his songs causing the singer to turn and whisper “that’s me” before they took this snap together.

Barber Hussein was working at Hagi’s Barber Shop in the city of Dusseldorf in the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia when he thought that his customer who had come in to have his beard trimmed looked very similar to British music legend Sting.

However, the barber and his colleagues were not entirely sure the singer was in their shop and did not want to ask their customer his name outright.

So the barber decided to play Sting’s hit ‘Shape Of My Heart’ and as the music started to play, Sting reportedly leaned over to the barber and whispered: “That’s me!”

Sting was in Germany for a series of concerts but had to cancel his show in Bonn on Monday (15th July) due to a throat infection.

The excited hairdresser shop manager later posted a snap of himself and Sting on social media with the caption: “Sting just jumped in for a shave and haircut! When he sat down on Hussein’s chair, our founder and creative director Seaver played “Shape Of My Heart” (not sure whether it’s really him or not). A few seconds later, he whispered “that’s me” and the whole store got goosebumps. A legend. So proud right now.”
