Fan invades pitch just to hug Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina during Colombia’s 6-0 thrashing of Bahrain

One Colombia fan seized his chance to meet David Ospina during the side’s 6-0 thrashing of Bahrain on Thursday – after invading the pitch just to hug the Arsenal goalkeeper.


The supporter was seen running onto the pitch with minutes of the friendly match left before making a beeline for Ospina and giving the Gunners man a quick hug.

Knowing that stewards were gaining ground on him, the fan then attempted his getaway safe in the knowledge that his apparent aim of showing Ospina some love was done and dusted.

The light-hearted moment comes days after another Colombia supporter did all he could to have a cuddle with Radamel Falcao as the Manchester United striker trained with the national side in Bahrain earlier this week.
