Young Boys vs Man Utd pitch invader leaves security sprawling and attempts flip
Manchester United's Champions League clash with Young Boys was briefly disrupted by a pitch invader who left security sprawling before attempting a hilarious front flip.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men suffered a gut-wrenching defeat out in Switzerland on Tuesday night, with Young Boys snatching a 2-1 victory in the dying seconds of stoppage time.
Before that late drama played out at the State de Suisse, however, play was halted when a fan got past security and burst onto the pitch in the 78th minute.
The invader could be seen running past both sets of players as United lined up a free-kick, before trying to pull off an audacious somersault.
Nevertheless, security eventually intervened to escort him off the field and allow play to continue.
United eventually slumped to the most agonising of defeats on a disappointing night out in Switzerland, despite Cristiano Ronaldo firing them in front after 13 minutes.
Bruno Fernandes teed up his Portugal team-mate, whose close-range effort crept through the legs of Young Boys goalkeeper David von Ballmoos.

But 10 minutes before half-time the game was flipped on its head when Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for a dangerous challenge on midfielder Christopher Martins.
In the end Wan-Bissaka's dismissal proved costly, as Young Boys took full control of proceedings after the interval and eventually grabbed a late victory.

Moumi Ngamaleu brought the hosts level in the 66th minute, before Theoson Siebatcheu raced through on goal, rounded David de Gea and tucked the winner home with what was the last kick of the game.
Solskjaer admitted after the defeat that Wan-Bissaka's red card cost them, saying: "It looked like a well-earned point and a good point in a difficult game.
"When you get the first goal you think you've got a great chance, it's enough to win the game but unfortunately that sending off will always have an impact."
He added: "Aaron gets a touch that's too far, and he gets the ball but he follows through. It's hard to argue against the referee but then again he didn't go through his ankle, he hit him on the top of his foot. It was never a malicious tackle."
