Writing online, one person said: “Mama duck has a football team,” while others commented on the ‘wonder of nature’.

The video, published on the ‘La Voz De Marbella’ Facebook page received hundreds of likes and shares.

A statement accompanying it read: “Marbella is fantastic, a natural and tourist paradise that surprises us many times.”
