A pitch invader charged towards Cristiano Ronaldo and had to be restrained by security after Manchester United’s incredible comeback win over Atalanta on Wednesday night.
The Reds were 2-0 down at half-time at Old Trafford, but goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo completed a stunning turnaround to put United on top of Group F in the Champions League.
Ronaldo celebrated by dropping to his knees at full-time, but cameras also picked up on a fan running towards him, before being dragged away by stewards.

Security need to be on alert for such incidents when multi-million-pound footballers are subject to obsessive fans on a daily basis.
At least nobody got hurt.
