Erling Haaland greeted a pitch invader by giving the fan his shirt and then celebrating, following Borussia Dortmund's win against Mainz.

Haaland doesn't give his match day shirts to everyone, as Gibraltar player Reece Styche revealed last month, after the Norwegian refused to swap shirts following a World Cup qualifier.

However one fan clearly made the cut at the weekend, when he ran onto the pitch after Dortmund's game with Mainz and managed to get his hands on Haaland's shirt.

The striker and his teammates were celebrating the win by applauding the fans, when one ran on and managed to get a long conversation with Haaland.

The fan asked for the striker's shirt, got a hug, and then the pair danced together and did Haaland's arm waving celebration.

The 21-year-old has continued his ridiculous form of the past couple of years at the beginning of the Bundesliga season, and added two more on Saturday.

First he put the hosts 2-0 up from the spot, after Marco Reus had given the team a lead early on, before doubling his tally in injury time to make it 3-1.

It means that the former Red Bull Salzburg striker now has nine goals in just six league games so far this season, to add to the 40 goals he's scored in the previous season and a half in Germany.

Haaland, who appeared to do the impossible in a recent viral video, couldn't help his team in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Germans were battered by Ajax, falling to a 4-0 defeat against the Eredivisie champions, as Sebastian Haller continued his immense form in Europe.

Haller was accidentally left off the team's European squad for last season's Europa League but has made up for it by scoring six goals in his first three games in the Champions League. Equalling a record set by Haaland.

Dortmund fans who want to get in on the act of grabbing a Haaland shirt might have to be quick, with the striker almost certainly leaving at the end of the season.

Between now and then though, there's likely to be a lot more goals to celebrate!
