A pigeon refused to leave the pitch at Borussia Dortmund and made several appearances on the coverage of their game against Wolfsburg.
Dortmund beat Wolfsburg 2-0 at Signal Iduna Park in the Bundesliga last weekend with a pigeon taking centre stage.

Despite numerous attempts by stadium staff to recover the bird and take it out of harm’s way, the animal would not be moved and continued to strut around on the grass.
It was spotted taking part in several key moments in the match and even in the net as a goal is scored.
