VIDEO: Pitch invader tackled by steward during Crystal Palace vs Newcastle

Fan stopped in his tracks.



A Crystal Palace steward was forced to rugby tackle a fan who had run onto the pitch in the middle of their clash with Newcastle at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

The pitch invader was spectacularly stopped in his tracks by the brave stadium official who jumped on the man to the delight of the crowd as the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.

He then appeared to be successfully detained until further assistance arrived.
