A protester displaying a rainbow flag leapt onto the pitch during last night’s World Cup game in Qatar, protesting human rights issues.
The man also wore a T-shirt branded with slogans such as ‘Save Ukraine’ and ‘Respect for Iranian women’. He was chased by stewards during the second half of the Portugal versus Uruguay match.
Italian press agency AGI identified him as Mario Ferri. He has made similar protests before, including at the 2014 Brazil World Cup, where he criticised child poverty.
