The animal became an instant celebrity in France after being abducted from a circus on Oct. 31 by five drunken men who took him out for a stroll in the streets of Bordeaux.

The llama, nicknamed Serge in reference to French singer Serge Lama, received a warm welcome from the Chaban Delmas crowd before the kickoff of Girondins Bordeaux's game against Nantes, the Canaries.

"We don't have canaries but we have the llama," read a banner in the stands.

A draw was organised by the club with the winner being presented to the llama at the stadium, where club president Jean-Louis Triaud happily posed with the animal for photographers.
