Video: Jimmy Jump attempts to steal the World Cup trophy
Serial pitch invader Jimmy Jump attempted to nick the World Cup trophy before kick-off in this evening’s World Cup final.
Wearing a red hat and a T-shirt reading ‘Jimmy Jump against racism’, the Barcelona fan beat tight security to very nearly get his hands on the trophy before security took the opportunity to beat him instead. He was escorted out of the stadium by seven large gentlemen.
It is likely the pitch invader – who has previously struck on occasions including the Euro 2004 final and 2007 Champions League final – was attempting to put his trademark red hat on the trophy.
