Security guard turns Polish fan into a human fireball

As the season comes to a close in most leagues around the world, down-to-the-wire title races tend to dominate the headlines, but it’s the scrums at the other end of the tables - the relegation battles — that often provide the “fieriest” of atmospheres in stadiums across the world.

In Poland’s Ekstraklasa (First Division), things got a little too hot for one fan.

After relegation-threatened Zaglebie Lubin lost 1-0 to Slask Wroclaw on Saturday, the raucous away supporters were smartly held behind in the stadium as security tried to prevent clashes between the two fan bases. Tempers “flared” anyway.

When one supporter climbed up on a gate and menacingly waved around his flare, a security guard tried to extinguish it (or get him to come down, or both) by dousing the fan with a can of AXE body spray (OK, we made that part up. It was probably pepper spray). Unfortunately, the spray reacted violently with the open flame and briefly lit the fan up like a Christmas tree.

The “human fireball” only lasted for a second and the fan was reportedly unharmed. However, we’re willing to bet he won’t be acting a fool in stadiums again anytime soon.

See the footage (start at the 1:35 mark, left corner) below:
