It appears that Austria Vienna’s mascot is drunk in this video that shows Leo the Lion’s wayward pitch invasion and subsequent collapse.

In the midst of a 2-1 win against bottom side Wiener Neustadt, Leo decided to run on to the pitch in celebration.

The swaying figure of a man in a giant furry suit who is clearly quite unstable on his feet can soon be seen falling over before being calmed down and eventually caught by officials after one last foiled escape attempt.
