After winning 3-2 against Juventus on Saturday, the Spurs fans and players were naturally in a jubilant mood.

As the squad completed their lap of honour of the Singapore national stadium, players could be seen smiling and laughing as they thanked the fans.

However, footage shared over Reddit saw one enthusiastic fan trying to get a little too close to the Spurs stars as he breached security and invaded the pitch.

Luckily though, a member of the Tottenham Hotspur coaching team, Allan Dixon, reacted fast and deterred the invader as the players looked on in shock.

With Dixon securely moving the fan off the pitch, he could have been forgiven for thinking that was the end, but it wasn’t.

In the same footage, you can see Dele Alli share a brief glimpse and chat with Heung Min Son as their devious plan was hatched.

Dele Alli makes his way to the front of the group clapping to the crowd, with Dixon none the wiser as Heung Min Son covered up and snuck around the squad.

As Son closed in, the Spurs coach, thinking he was dealing with another pitch invader, sprung into action before quickly realising he was in fact being approached by Spurs’ Korean international.

Dixon reacted playfully to the ruse and the Spurs players and fans burst into laughter as Dele and Son shared a congratulatory cuddle.
