An 11-year-old boy from Liverpool has earned unlikely global fame after sneaking out of the crowd and in among the Chelsea players as they collected their Europa League winners' medals on Wednesday night.
Louis Kearns had been at the match in Amsterdam with his Dad, and on its conclusion decided he would try and sneak down onto the pitch to try and get a photo or an autograph with Fernando Torres ior Rafa Benitez.
The cheeky lad, who is a Liverpool fan, apparently idolises both men - and his chutzpah was rewarded handsomely as he ended up standing right behind Torres as Michel Platini handed the Spanish striker his medal.
UEFA and Chelsea officials appear to have assumed that the youngster was one of the players' children. Either way, he was allowed free reign.
He even ended up getting a picture of himself with Platini after the ceremony... not to mention John Terry, Guus Hiddink, Eden Hazard and - probably best of the lot - retired uber-ref Pierluigi Collina.
Eventually, the dozy security staff realised that he wasn't with any body and had no accreditation - but by then his mission was well and truly accomplished.
As his image was seen on TV people were wondering who the small boy in the red cap was - with only his family and friends at home knowing the answer.
"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'," his auntie, Francesca Kearns, told the BBC.
"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.
"Torres is his favourite player and Rafa Benitez was his favourite Liverpool manager. He saw the opportunity to get a photograph with Torres, he saw a little opening and he got through it and ended up on the pitch, he then followed and climbed the stairs behind Torres.
"He is confident and he seems to seize the opportunity, but I think he's now overwhelmed, he can't believe what it has caused. Twitter has gone crazy, everyone is asking who he is."
