We all want to meet our idols.
Whether that be Kim Kardashian (if you’re a wanker), Piers Morgan (if you’re an even bigger wanker), or whoever, everyone wants a selfie.

BOOM and the fan is gone.
In fairness, if you want to approach Messi, there’s better ways to do it than dropping ten feet from a balcony and running towards him.
Top marks for the security guard though, he done a better job of marking Messi than a lot of defenders have over the years!
