THE THING ABOUT running on to a football pitch to meet Leo Messi is that you don’t expect to be actually able to do it. Won’t a steward or a kindly security man stop you, put his arm around your shoulder and show you the way to the sidelines before you get anywhere near the Great One?
But what happens if you actually get on to the pitch, come face-to-face with one of the greatest footballers of all time, and then have to follow through on your plan?
Well, if you’re this fan from last night’s Sweden-Argentina friendly, you give him a Laurent Blanc-esque kiss on the forehead and then an elderly aunt-esque muss of the hair.
Messi dealt with it like a complete pro, of course.
