A fan could be seen on coverage of the CONCACAF Nations League final, evading security guards before throwing himself over a railing behind the CBS Sports Network pundits.
USA defeated Mexico 3-2 to lift the trophy after extra time thanks to a Christian Pulisic penalty winner in the 114th minute at the Empower Field at Mile High.
Analysing the first 90 minutes of the game in Denver for their American audience, CBS Sports’ broadcast was interrupted by a man running away from stewards who then proceeded to jump down, apparently to the tier below.
Oguchi Onyeu, Clint Dempsey, Charlie Davies and host Kate Abdo kept their cool during the incident, with the latter telling viewers:
Wow, sorry, everybody.
Something going on behind us.
Security looking down like “fuck that, they don’t pay me enough”
