This Pitch Invader Is Basically James Bond

We shouldn't really condone the behaviour of pitch invaders but, credit where credit is due, this is brilliant.

While pitch invasions seldom end well, usually ending with one naked man being tackled to the ground by burly men in high-vis jackets, this fan did something rather special during Lokomotiv Moscow’s 1-1 draw with Besiktas in the Europa League last night.

Fleeing a small army of stewards after taking to the pitch, he reached the gaping gap between the fans in the stand and the security fence where he was cheered on by the enthused home crowd. So what Bond-like way did the plucky man use to make it back to safety?

You'll have to watch to find out. It's not quite by stepping on a croc a la Roger Moore, but it's not far off.
