In recent months, pitch invaders have become more and more brazen.
Stopping for ‘selfies’ with players, being carried off the pitch in tears and even having their shirt signed during a match.
But when Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid travelled to Granada this weekend, the Portuguese superstar found one pitch invader who just wouldn’t let go.
At the end of Los Blancos’ 4-0 win, one youngster came onto the Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes and found the Madrid man, who scored in his 12 th consecutive game, giving Ronaldo a big cuddle.
But the kid wouldn’t let the forward loose, even when multiple stewards attempted to unhand him.
Ronaldo initially cuddled him back before a look of awkwardness became more and more apparent; Sergio Ramos got the same treatment with another youngster.
Eventually the stewards were able to get the kid to let go.Reuse content
