The World Cup contest between Portugal and Uruguay was brought to a standstill on Tuesday morning when a pitch invader stormed the field.

The man donned a blue shirt with the Superman logo emblazoned on the front with separate messages printed on the front and back.

On the front of his shirt the message read “Save Ukraine” while on the back was “Respect for Iranian Women.”

The man waved a rainbow flag as he made his way across the pitch before he was ultimately stopped by security.

He dropped the flag on the pitch as he was escorted off with the referee (Alireza Faghani) having to pick it up and take it to the sidelines.
