Greenpeace protester with bright yellow parachute lands on EU Championship game

MUNICH (AP) — A Greenpeace protestor parachuted into the stadium before France’s game against Germany at the European Championship on Tuesday.

He glided into the stadium and seemed to lose control after connecting with wires attached to the roof for TV cameras.

He struggled to avoid crashing into spectators and managed to land on the the field, where Germany players Antonio Rüdiger and Robin Gosens were the first to approach him.

The parachute had the words “Kick out oil Greenpeace” written on it.

The Euro 2020 game started on schedule.
