VIDEO: Leo Messi handshake sends pitch invader away happy

What a guy.

IF THE GOAL is to discourage fans from running on to the field during sporting events, Lionel Messi didn’t exactly help the cause yesterday.

During Argentina’s 3-1 friendly win over Germany yesterday, a fan ran on to the pitch. And as he approached Messi, rather than being man-handled by an imposing security guard, he was greeted with a smile and a handshake from the world’s best player.

After that, the jubilant fan gladly surrendered and walked off the pitch with a big blissful smile on his face.
