- A fan found his way to Cristiano Ronaldo amid heavy security presence to take a selfie with the superstar
- The unknown man jumped the pitch panel at the London Stadium and raced towards the Portuguese before the stewards whisked him away
- Ronaldo again scored as Man United defeated West Ham 2-1 to stretch their unbeaten run to five games in the EPL
Cristiano Ronaldo fan defies all the security presence available at the London Stadium to take a selfie with his idol Cristiano Ronaldo.
The unknown fan jumped the barrier from where he sat to watch the Portuguese inspire Manchester United to victory over West Ham United according to the short video posted on Facebook by ESPN.
Said Benrahma opened the scoring for the home team in the 30th minute but the lead only lasted just five minutes as the Portuguese restored parity for the visitors.
Jesse Lingard then came from the bench to fire the Red Devils to the much-needed win as they maintain an unbeaten status in the Premier League this campaign.

While CR7 and his teammates were heading back into the dressing room, the supporter escaped the presence of the stewards at the venue and raced to take a snapshot with the superstar.
Fan beat security presence to take selfie with Ronaldo
Although he didn't get as much time as he would have wanted, he, however, fulfilled his aim by taking the picture and later posted it online along with the video of his sprint towards Ronaldo.
Moments after grabbing the 36-year-old, the security personnel quickly swung into action and dragged the fan away from the footballer.
Meanwhile, Man United will host the Hammers at Old Trafford in the third round of their EFL Cup on Wednesday, September 22.
Why Ronaldo and Fernandes forced Lingard to celebrate goal
Legit.ng earlier reported that Jesse Lingard's 89th-minute screamer was all Manchester United needed to claim maximum points against West Ham United at Old Trafford.
The 28-year-old drove in from the left before unleashing the unstoppable curly shot from long-range and Lukasz Fabianski could not stop it.
He has now scored two goals in three Premier League appearances for the Red Devils so far this campaign and with his superb form, he could get many more.
