Just as you think you've heard it all in regards to the disgraceful security management of the Champions League final, we learn it wasn't outside the Stade de France where security mistakes were made. It turns out well known pitch invader Jarvo 69 snuck onto the pitch and celebrated alongside the Real Madrid players Saturday evening after the Champions League final.
While Liverpool fans were being tear gassed and pepper sprayed outside the stadium, somehow this very identifiable pitch invader was able to simply stroll from the stands, down past a flank of riotpolice before vaulting over the advertisement boards straight over to the celebrating Real Madrid squad.
Jarvo's previous pitch invasions
Jarvo69 has gained a following on his Youtube account after entering the pitch on many of the world's biggest stages, from cricket to rugby and now the Champions League final.
Jarvo has quite the track record in being involved in games that Ireland are playing in. Back in November, he lined up beside the Japan rugby team before the game against Ireland in the Aviva stadium.
He did the same during Ireland's Six Nations game against England at Twickenham, lining up alongside the English team before being spear tackled by a member of the security.

Sadly, the massive hit on the attention-seeking pitch invader didn't stop him getting back to his old tricks during the Champions League final.
French Government's reaction to what happened at the Champions League Final.
Bizarrely, French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin claimed that thousands of fake tickets were used to get into the ground and thanked the French police for their role in the final.
Darmanin also put the blame on Liverpool supporters after the game which has caused outrage among fans, pundits and journalists who were at the game.
"I'd like to thank the forces of law and order. They were very calm and able to avoid drama.
"What happened, first of all, was this mass gathering of the British supporters of the Liverpool club, without tickets, or with fake tickets."
Since then, Liverpool have called for an investigation into the shambles that the Champions League final was. Chairman Tom Werner has written a letter to the minister demanding an apology for his comments and treatment of the supporters.
