One of the pitch invaders stopped for a selfie with Jude Bellingham and Vinicius, one managed to do Cristiano Ronaldo‘s ‘siu’ celebration and the third was quickly apprehended by stewards.

All three bore the same logo and name plus links to various websites on their T-shirts.

Who are the Champions League final pitch invaders?

The three pitch invaders all bore the same name of a controversial Russian streamer – Mellstroy – who has been accused of going to extreme lengths to attract views.

This includes violently abusing women, fighting members of the public and humiliating people.

Andrey Burim - aka Mellstroy - was found guilty of violently abusing a model, Alena Efremova, on a live stream in 2021

The Sun previously reported that Andrey Burim started his streaming career bu convincing girls on chat roulette to strip, and then broadcasting those interactions to his audience.

The vlogger later streamed parties at his apartment and would accept donations from people asking women to get naked, partygoers to fight and even dousing someone in urine.

He was arrested in late 2020 for beating a model, Alena Efremova, on a live broadcast.

The model had her face rammed into a table that left her a “bloody mess” and Mellstroy was subsequently banned from YouTube and other platforms.

He then went on record to mock her £96,500 compensation claim.

He told journalists outside a Moscow court at the time: “This is too small an amount of money.

“If she was to ask 30 or 40 million (£289,000 or £386,000), I would have paid.

“What have I done anyway? I haven’t beaten her in any case. 

“Her concussion claim is just words.”

It was later reported in the Russian media that he was found guilty and sentenced of six months of corrective labour plus a 10 per cent deduction of his salary as state revenue.

Efremova is said to have received $1,000 in compensation.

It is not known if the pitch invaders are directly linked to the streamer or each other.

Was there a £300k offer for the pitch invaders?

Social media posts also claim the blogger made a £300,000 open offer to anyone who invaded the pitch in a T-shirt bearing his name.

It is currently not known if the offer is legit, if all three will be paid separately, or at all.

What happened to the pitch invaders?
