A fan interrupted a match last night and managed to get a picture with AC Milan’s Stephan El Shaarawy.

AC Milan took on Olympiacos in the US last night and it was a match to forget for the club as the Greek side beat them 3-0.

However this fan left with an unusual memento.

He ran onto the pitch in injury time and performed a quick sliding tackle to trip up El Shaarawy. It wasn’t enough to knock over the Italian but did slow him up and allow the fan time to jump back up and get a selfie with the player.

El Shaarawy didn’t seem too bothered by the interruption, standing patiently with the man until security intervened.

Maybe he was still dazzled thinking about Olympiacos' third goal, this thunderstrike from Andreas Bouchalakis.
