A Greenpeace protester has narrowly avoided disaster after parachuting into Munich’s Allianz Arena moments before kick-off in France and Germany’s Euro 2020 match.
The man appeared to lose control of his parachute upon entry into the stadium, flying at some pace dangerously close crowd members before an abrupt landing on the pitch.
Reports suggested the man’s parachute made contact with camera cables suspended high above the pitch, causing him to lose control.
He was escorted from the pitch by security and given medical attention, but appeared to be OK.
The match started on time as scheduled.
The man’s parachute read “Kick out oil”.
