World Cup hat intruder handed £175 fine

A fan who tried grabbing the World Cup trophy minutes before Sunday's final has been let off lightly by a South African court, who fined him 2000 rand (£175).

Police have confirmed that serial invader Jaume Marquet Cot appeared in a Johannesburg court charged with trespassing and attempted theft at the match between Netherlands and Spain.

The 34-year-old, who is known as Jimmy Jump, dashed more than 50 metres after escaping security on the north side of the pitch and was eventually tackled within a few feet of the trophy.

An official guarding the trophy floored him with a punch and he was carried into the tunnel before being arrested.

Reports said that Cot did not intend stealing the trophy but rather wanted to put a Spanish-style hat on it.

He is a notorious invader at major events - his last stunt seeing him find his way onto the stage during Spain's performance at the Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo.
