What happened

During the international friendly, an enthusiastic Chinese fan invaded the pitch in an attempt to hug football icon Messi, and he succeeded.

He could be seen climbing out of the wall and jumping down from the stand before hustling to hug Messi and being chased over the field by security.

with the crowd in the stadium, shouting Chinese phrases that sort of translate to “Awesome!” and “Badass!”.

It’s safe to say the guy was having one of the best moments of his life, having hugged Messi and managed to high-five Emiliano Martinez before being apprehended by security. Still, he kept his contented smile while he was being carried out.

Fan reacted after hugging Messi

In an interview with Messi’s fan club, he apologized for his behavior while criticizing the security measures.

“Of course, I also hope to use my negative case to tell the security personnel that your security work is not competent and gave me such an opportunity,” he said. “There will be many international competitions in Beijing in the future. I hope you will improve your security capabilities.”
