A number of people have been taken to hospital for treatment after a parachute protest went wrong. The stunt, which saw a man with “Kick out oil! Greenpeace” written on his parachute, drop into the Allianz Arena during France’s Euro 2020 match with Germany, went wrong when the parachutist got tangled in wires carrying an overhead camera. Debris crashed onto the pitch and stands, France’s head coach Didier Deschamps was forced to duck out of the way of a large piece of equipment, and the parachutist landed heavily, requiring medical attention. UEFA stated: “This inconsiderate act – which could have had very serious consequences for a huge number of people attending – caused injuries to several people attending the game who are now in hospital and law authorities will take the necessary action. The staging of the match was fortunately not impacted by such a reckless and dangerous action, but several people were injured nonetheless.”

Mousset initially claimed his cousin had been driving the Lamborghini when it crashed into parked cars on the wrong side of the road at speed. The forward already had 9 points on his license and will also pay costs of £110 and a victim surcharge of £190.
