A young fan ran onto the pitch during Saturday’s Euro 2024 match between Turkey and Portugal and posed for a selfie with Cristiano Ronaldo in the centre circle.

The fan, wearing a red tracksuit top, evaded security staff as he emerged from the stand behind the benches midway through the second half of the game in Dortmund and made his way towards the Portugal skipper.

Ronaldo then posed smiling for a photo before the pitch invader ran off trying to escape stewards who eventually caught up with him and escorted him away to applause from the stands. Portugal were leading 3-0 at the time in the Group F game.

The young boy was then chased out of the pitch with the stewards who finally caught up with him near the touchline. Ronaldo had two other fans evade the stewards and get to him in the course of the game.
