Play was held up during Sunday’s Serie A clash between Sassuolo and Inter Milan when a man parachuted onto the pitch.

Romelu Lukaku was waiting to take a penalty for Antonio Conte’s Inter side when the incident occurred at the Stadio Cittร  del Tricolore.

The unorthodox pitch invasion was dealt with by stewards, who escorted the intruder from the field of play so Lukaku could take his penalty just before half time.

He scored it, his second of the match in a game that Inter won 4-3.
