Fan Runs Onto Field, Tries to Hug Neymar Before Kickoff in his Camp Nou Debut [Video]


Neymar … he’s so hot right now. Before the Brazilian sensation could make his home debut at the Camp Nou for Barcelona, a portly-looking fan ran onto the field and made a beeline for him. It was a long run and security guards — or stewards as they like to call them in Europe — caught up with him before anything dangerous could transpire.

Barcelona went on to win the preseason friendly against Santos, Neymar’s former club, 8-0. In a nice touch, the lettering on the Barcelona shirts for the game were designed by a fan with Down Syndrome.

Here’s the video. It’s nice to know Cesc Fabregas found the whole incident amusing.
