With just minutes on the clock and despite Granada vs. Manchester United being played behind closed doors, a streaker ran on the pitch during the Europa League clash.
A pitch invader somehow evaded security and made his way onto the pitch with the match briefly stopped on Thursday.
The man, sporting a full head of hair and beard, spread his arms out as he ran across the field completely butt naked in a bizarre moment.

Local police appeared to detain the man before the game resumed play.

Needless to say, the hairy streaker sent social media wild.

Streaker on the pitch in a game with no fans allowed in, and now the TV cameras have literally missed a goal.
The Europa League is elite.

One Twitter user wrote: "Wait so how is there a streaker on the pitch. Was it one of the staff or media team."
A second joked: "Fellaini made a return as a streaker!!!"
A third added: "A streaker in an empty stadium? Now I've seen everything."
Cameras picked up the streaker though they missed the first goal of the game when Marcus Rashford brilliantly slotted home to give United an important away goal.
