Liverpool lift Champions League trophy after beating Spurs in Madrid

A pitch invader interrupted the Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid.

A women wearing a leotard bearing the name of an online prankster group ran on to the field in the 17th minute, briefly bringing the match to a halt.

Stewards came on to the pitch and quickly apprehended her as she made several evasive darts through midfield, before removing her from the field.

The score was 1-0 to Liverpool at the time after Mohamed Salah’s early penalty fired them in front.

Tottenham briefly enjoyed a better spell in the following minutes as they took a grip of the game, but they struggled to create any serious chances of merit.
