Usually when a fan invades the pitch during a match, they have no discernable reason for being there other than to waste everyone's time and it requires a spine-denting tackle from one or 12 members of stadium security to remove them so the game can continue. But during Botafogo's 1-0 win against Fluminense (in which Clarence Seedorf scored the winner in the 83rd minute), a Fluminense supporter invaded the pitch just to kiss Fred's feet. He then jogged off, giving the crowd two thumbs up as he made his way back to the stands.
At 29 years old, Fred is enjoying an increased level of international recognition after leading Brazil with five goals at the Confederations Cup, but being the recipient of mid-match feet kisses probably isn't entirely down to that. Even before his success with the national team, he getting kisses from beautiful women on motorcycles in the middle of the street.
