Mario Balotelli takes a selfie with two fans who abruptly ran onto the pitch
Two fans rushed onto the pitch in the closing minutes of A.C. Milan's 5-1 friendly loss to Manchester City at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Sunday.
In a selfie-crazed world, the fans were looking for a selfie with Italian star Mario Balotelli. Surprisingly, Balotelli obliged before security could reach them. Here's how Pro Soccer Talk described it:
[Balotelli's] star power is alive and well in the Steel City. Towards the end of the game two fans ran up to him and took a selfie with the Italian superstar. Naturally, Balotelli posed before the fans were carted away by police. Majestic.
Here are a couple of videos from social media of how the process all unfolded:
