The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner scored the opener with a spectacular curler from outside the box within two minutes of the game.

The fan, who not only met Messi but also managed to meet Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, will now be facing a hefty punishment for his actions.

According to the statement issued by the police (via MARCA), “The Chaoyang District Public Security Bureau placed him in administrative detention according to the law, identifying the 18-year-old, surnamed Di, who will not be allowed to enter a stadium for the next 12 months.”
