World famous selfie finally unveiled

A SUPPORTER who ran onto the pitch to grab a selfie with football megastar Cristiano Ronaldo has uploaded the image to Instagram, revealing to the world the end result of his daring plan.

The obsessed fan eyed a rare opportunity to grab a snap with the star during Juventus’ 1-0 Champions League victory over Manchester United this week, The Sun reports.

Known as “dilmancr.7” on Instagram, he legged it onto the pitch and managed to get a picture before being wrestled to the ground.

Ronaldo even told the security guards to let him have his moment of fame before being dragged from the field.

Uploading the images to Instagram he wrote: “hi guys I just want to say thank you for your kind (sic) Cristiano you are not only prayer you are legend you are a great person I’m very excited to take selfie next to you my dreams come true.”

He also wrote alongside another picture of him being piled on by security: “Everybody see it, Ronaldo trying to save me under security.”

According to news site Kurdistan24, Dilman Khidr Wsu has been working at a hairdressing shop in Manchester for three years and has always wanted to get up close and personal with Ronaldo.

“Following the match, when Ronaldo along with other players were clapping for fans, I got an opportunity to reach Ronaldo,” Wsu said. “Some policemen caught me, but Ronaldo asked them to release me, and he asked me what I wanted.

“I told Ronaldo that I am a big fan of his, I love him, and I want to take a selfie with him. He agreed and asked for my mobile to take a selfie with me.

“It was my dream to take a selfie with Ronaldo, and I didn’t care what would happen to me after that.”

The selife caused plenty of discussion and generated headlines around the world. Ex-Premier League and A-League star Michael Bridges believes Ronaldo should not have engaged with the fan because it may encourage other people to go to extremes to meet their heroes.

“All fans want to get close to their idols but it doesn’t do the players any favours,” Bridges told Wide World of Sports. “The players are in a horrible predicament. when you have someone running at people like Ronaldo or Messi or Neymar they don’t know what’s going to happen — is it a fan who wants a selfie or an opposition fan who wants to hurt them?

“It could heighten the security around stadiums and that could make it an uncomfortable spectacle for fans you want to go and enjoy it and you don’t want a situation where fences have gone up like happened years ago.

“It’s a very hard situation for the players. They should just let the security guards get on with it and walk away.”

A further look into the diehard fan’s Instagram account shows how he models himself on the former Real Madrid man.

He has copied his haircuts and wears shirts with “Ronaldo 7” on the back.

A number of videos show him imitating Ronaldo’s renowned free-kick stance, and he even lifts up his shorts to expose his thighs like the Portuguese star does.

United could be punished for the fan’s actions after UEFA confirmed it has opened an investigation into the incident.

A statement from the football governing body read: “Disciplinary proceedings have been opened following the UEFA Champions League group stage match between Manchester United FC and Juventus Football Club (0-1), played on 23 October in England.”

It adds that the charge levelled at Manchester United is “Field invasion — Art. 16 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations.”
