A supporter risked injury in an attempt to get a picture with Barcelona forward Lionel Messi at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

The footage, which emerged on Twitter, shows a fan leaping from his seat and down quite a distance to try and meet the Argentine.

After jumping down, the man briefly grabbed Messi before he was tackled by a member of the security staff.

The footage appears to have been taken during the Spanish club’s training session at the stadium ahead of their pre-season friendly with Celtic over the weekend. Coach Luis Enrique’s side won that friendly 3-1 in Republic of Ireland.
