Often in football, a brave fan decides to act on impulse and jump the rails to run onto the field to meet his or her idol, and during Bafana’s game yesterday, it was no different. Did you see how Itumeleng Khune reacted?
Whilst there were a several Amakhosi players in Owne da Gama’s squad, the Khosi fan knew exactly where he was going, as he ran onto the field and straight to the direction of Bafana’s goals.
The fan signaled that he was coming in peace by putting his hands together, before bowing down on his knees to praise his idol.
Khune nonchalantly walked up to the man, bent over to give him a hug, before he was escorted off the field by security.
