The dreaded selfie. Everything about them are infuriating, especially if you're a professional footballer, as Neymar and Lionel Messi found out this week.

The pair looked like they were under attack by the feared ‘Selfie Stick Crew’ when they arrived at Munich airport ahead of their Champions League semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich.

But one fan was so excited to see Neymar and try to get his autograph that he forgot to look where he was going – and walked straight into a concrete pillar.

Holding back a smile, Neymar clearly felt some sympathy for the Barcelona supporter and decided to stop and sign his shirt for him, with Messi deciding to do the same moments after.


The players do have security and police on hand to keep them safe from the fans determined to get their snap with the global superstars, but it must be said, they’re doing a pretty awful job.
