UEFA has announced that « several people » are being treated in hospital because a demonstrator parachuted into Munich before France’s 1-0 victory over Germany in Munich Stadium jumped.

It added that « the judicial authorities will take the necessary action » for what is called a « reckless and dangerous » act.

Debris fell on the field and grandstand as the parachutist got himself tangled in wires carrying an overhead camera.

He had slipped into the stadium, but seemed to lose control after he had attached the cables for television cameras to the roof.

He tried not to collide with the spectators and landed on the field where the German players Antonio Rüdiger and Robin Gosens were the first to approach him.

He was then taken away by security officers and medical care on the sidelines.
