Immediately after the final whistle blew on Spain's 4-0 win over Italy in the Euro 2012 final, the victors huddled up and danced the jig of domination. One Spanish fan tried to get in on the fun by invading the pitch and smashing his way into the huddle just as a steward grabbed hold of him. Sergio Busquets tried to take a swing at the overzealous fan, but didn't connect.

And don't worry, as terrified as Cesc Fabregas looks in the photo above, his suffering was soon alleviated as he held not one, but two Euro trophies back in the dressing room...

He brings them everywhere he goes. (@cesc4officials)

Tonight, Xavi can rest easy.

UPDATE: Spain also had a trophy presentation crasher, who was somehow able to stroll right up to the team after they lifted the cup. He was eventually escorted away, but Iker Casillas did not seem to enjoy his presence.

Thanks to Jordan for the video!
