A Deadpool fan dressed as the Marvel superhero was tackled by armed police after he was mistaken as a possible terror threat.

Christian Pianta was going to watch a sneak preview of 'Deadpool 2' with his friend Alessandro Botta when his outfit and two replica handguns sparked panic.

Swiss police swarmed the pair in the street after someone called authorities thinking he was armed with two weapons for an attack.

But officers in Lugano soon realised that the masked man posed no threat at all - and gave him a fine for violating a so-called burqa ban.
