Shades of Hot Fuzz here, with a French steward playing the part of Nick Frost.

The footage comes from the Coupe de France match between Chauray v Lorient. The pitch invader is already on his back to the stands by the time anyone seems to notice him, so the steward is always playing catch-up.

While the young intruder jumps fences with ease, the hapless official falls at the first hurdle.
