Watch a Lionel Messi fan run onto the pitch and get a hug from his idol


Lionel Messi is widely considered the world's best soccer player. But he has time for fans.

Security didn't stop the fan, who live-tweeted his plan and had a friend livestream it.

Messi was playing for Argentina in the Cópa Americana, a soccer tournament for the nations in the Americas.

Argentina beat the U.S. in the semifinal 4-0 and will play either Colombia or Chile in the final Sunday night.
