Marseille supporter scores against Toulouse in Ligue 1
Marseille registered a comfortable 2-0 win over Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Sunday thanks to a goal apiece from Florian Thauvin and Lucas Ocampos.
However, the first goal of the evening was actually scored by a fan, and not just any fan.
L'OM invited supporter Kamel Zaroual to take a ceremonial kick-off at the Stade Velodrome before the match as a reward for his fundraising efforts for local disadvantaged children.
Zaroual recently cycled roughly 2,000 kilometres from his home in the nearby city of Arles north to the city of Amiens and back to raise money for charity.
Rather brilliantly, the 36-year-old couldn't resist the temptation of scoring a goal at his beloved team's stadium, so he took the kick-off and the proceeded to sprint up the pitch before burying a shot past 18-year-old Toulouse goalkeeper Alban Lafont.
It was one heck of a fine finish too, with Zaroual slotting a lovely low shot inside Lafont's left-hand post.
"I am not a professional cyclist, the only doping substances I take are beer and cigarettes," he told France 3 after completing his mammoth cycle journey.
What a hero.
