Meet Timur, a six-year-old Ukrainian boy who has become an online sensation after this dramatic reaction to Andriy Shevchenko’s goal against Sweden was captured on live television.

Apparently, Timur lives in Kyiv and has “long wanted to see a live football match”. Ukraine v Sweden at Euro 2012 was his first. The Ukrainians ended up victorious, winning the match 2-1 and the young fan has become something of a symbol for the joint-host nation’s success.

According to the video description on YouTube:

The boy is now going on vacation with his family, so he’ll watch subsequent matches on TV.
