VIDEO: Running child repeatedly evades capture to hug Álvaro Morata

Gets to embrace idol after slaloming through security across pitch.

Watch this clip of a young boy running across a pitch and repeatedly evading capture so he can get to hug his hero Álvaro Morata.

The Spain national team were training in Madrid ahead of Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Israel, and one youngster spied a big opportunity to embrace his idol.

Despite the best efforts of suited security figures, the kid slaloms his way out of their attempted grasps and eventually reaches Morata on the far side of the pitch.

Morata has scored 13 goals in 34 appearances for Real Madrid this season and is currently being linked with a move to Chelsea, with Okdiario reporting that his model fiancé Alice Campello is house-hunting in London.

He is being touted as a replacement for Diego Costa should his mooted lucrative move to China materialise in the summer.
