How do you escape the @ character inside a code block to prevent username resolution?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Markdown syntax guide

I'm trying to write a comment with a code block, something like:

@Test(expectedExceptions = IllegalStateException.class

However Bitbucket seems to be very keen on trying to look up @Test as an end-user and since we have a user with that user id the @ sign will disappear and only the user name will show up unfortunately (and probably that user will receive an unnecessary notification).
