Real Madrid fan launches into Superman dive to grab ball

Published Add your comment

An elderly Real Madrid fan's trip to the Bernabeu almost ended in tears after he dived to try and catch a ball that had flown into the crowd.

The man made an ambitious grab for the ball when it had been kicked into the crowd during Los Blancos game against Espanyol today.


Leaping off his feet and into his fellow Real Madrid supporters, the ageing gentleman missed the ball and looked to be in line for a serious tumble Fortunately for him a fellow fan was on hand to grab him when his attempt to imitate Superman went awry and he avoided injury. 

On the pitch Real Madrid are cruising towards a much-needed win. Carlo Ancelotti's side are 3-0 as things stand, and if they complete the victory as expected it will be their first in three games.


However the last time they lost two games in a row as they have done against Atletico Madrid and Valencia they embarked on an incredible 22-game winning run. They will hope three points against Espanyol will kick-start something similar.
