Top Lad. Liverpool fan too.
It was a moment that left everyone, including UEFA president Michel Platini, scratching their heads. Just who is that pint-sized fan muscling in on Chelsea's Europa League trophy ceremony on Wednesday night?
Well, far from the early speculation that it may have been one of the players' young sons, it has emerged the blonde lad who came within a few feet of lifting the famous cup was an 11-year-old fan from Liverpool.
Up for the cup: A young fan managed to get on the podium for Chelsea's Europa League trophy party
Louis Kearns had evaded security at the full-time whistle to run on to the pitch for a photo with Fernando Torres and manager Rafael Benitez.
When he realised that he had in fact got by completely unnoticed, the chancer cheekily joined the rest of the squad on the march up the stairs of the Amsterdam ArenA to collect their medals.
Speaking to the Sun, Louis's mum Margaret admitted, like the rest of us, she couldn't quite believe what she was seeing.
She said: 'I nearly died when I saw him go to collect the trophy. I couldn’t believe it was him. Everybody was going mad on Twitter. I’m still in shock.
'I'm not sure how they got tickets, let alone how he nearly collected the cup.'

The schoolboy got so close that he even shook the hand of Platini, who was leading the presentation.
Louis' aunt Francesca, 28, said: 'I was watching the game, but I wasn't paying much attention to it. I've then seen a blond boy walk past the screen and I said "I'm sure that's our Louis".
'We were just laughing about it as he seems to get himself everywhere. As Torres went up to get his medal, he was waiting behind him and we realised it was him.'
A UEFA spokesman added: 'The young boy in question was quietly removed once he got spotted on the ceremony tribune.'
