Kid embarrasses security guards in heroic pitch invasion

Three components are fundamental to any good pitch invasion: speed, agility and an uncanny ability to make the chasing security personnel look foolish.

One young fan successfully ticked off all three prerequisites when he hopped the barriers at a France training session on Friday.

The youngster tore across the grass – inadvertently causing two suited officials to hilariously barge each other to the ground – before evading another flimsy challenge.

Eventually, the officials caught their target and sheepishly escorted him from the pitch as the crowd warmly applauded the kid’s effort.
