Polish fan set on fire by stadium security guard

The relegation round of the Polish Ekstraklasa began over the weekend, with Zaglebie Lubin suffering a 1-0 defeat at Slask Wroclaw on Saturday.

After the game at Wroclaw's Municipal Stadium, the Lubin fans were kept behind, where they defied their loss with raucous chanting and plenty of flares. When one supporter climbed up on a gate to wave his flare in the air like he just don't care, a stadium security guard tried to get him down by dousing him in what appeared to be some kind of pepper spray.

Unfortunately, the spray reacted with the flare and turned the fan into a human fireball.

As you can see in the video at the top of this post (look in the bottom left-hand corner at around the [1.40] mark), the chap was on fire for less than a second, but it was enough to make him climb down and scamper back into the crowd.
