West Ham – Tottenham 16.08.2014, police arrested fan who invaded the pitch and took free kick

The over-zealous fan ran the length of Upton Park before stealing the set piece from under Christian Eriksen’s nose much to the delight of social media

The football fan who ran on the pitch and took a free kick during West Ham vs Tottenham has been arrested.

The over-eager supporter ran some 70 yards before booting the ball towards the Hammers goal in a bizarre incident on Saturday afternoon.

His shot was saved by West Ham’s goalkeeper Adrian while the pitch invader was chased by a steward amid cheers from the crowd.

The incident provoked amusement on social media too, with Gary Lineker saying the effort was better than Spurs star Christian Eriksen’s free kick once play had resumed.

He wrote on Twitter: “A fan runs on the pitch at Upton Park and takes the free kick. Made a better fist of it than Eriksen.”

Tonight Scotland Yard said a 22-year-old man from Kent had been arrested for suspected pitch invasion.

He is currently in custody at an east London police station, a spokesman added.
