Greenpeace has apologised after a parachuting protester caused several injuries to spectators before the Euro 2020 game with France and Germany. The plan, according to Greenpeace spokesperson Benjamin Stephan was ‘to fly over the stadium and drop a latex ball with a message of protest on to the field’. However the parachuter accidentally made contact with the overhead spider camera before nearly crashing into the stands. Fortunately the parachuter managed to slightly regain control before crashing on to the pitch. Uefa said that ‘several people’ were treated in hospital with injuries.
