Fan runs on field at World Cup; LeBron James films it (Video)


Social media is a great thing, especially when NBA star LeBron James is at the World Cup Final in Brazil.

First, LeBron shared a photo on his Instagram account that gave everyone a look at his seat for the Germany vs. Argentina final at Estádio Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro, but that wasn’t the best thing to come from LeBron’s social media accounts on Sunday afternoon.

During the second half, there was some idiot fan — who was probably drunk out of his mind and about as aware of where he was as Germany’s Christoph Kramer — but the ABC broadcast did not show exactly what was going on.

All that was mentioned was that there was some fan looking for attention.

That is where LeBron James saved the day.

LeBron pulled through in the clutch and shared a video that he filmed of the fan running onto the field before getting tackled by security.

Check out the video below:

Now the entire world, not just Cleveland, owes LeBron James a big thank you.
