During the game between Slask Wroclaw and Zaglebie Lubin on Saturday, the spectator climbed a fence while holding a flare and when sprayed by riot police he burst into flames.

Having been set on fire, the spectator then fell down, only to get back up again seemingly unhurt and get back among the fans.
