Cruzeiro are almost there. Almost.
The Brazilian league leaders, Cruzeiro, beat Gremio 3-0 at a packed Mineirao Stadium on Sunday, but the hosts were denied a chance to seal the Brazilian title because second-place Atletico Paranaense also won. Yet with a third league title in touching distance for Cruzeiro – one more win will sow up the championship – their fans were in raptures during the match.
During a live broadcast of the game, an on-the-spot reporter for one of the local channels got an up-close taste of just how passionate the Cruzeiro fans are when one 30-something dude tried to slap a kiss on him while he was on air.
The presenter struggled as the fan put his hands around his head, and after avoiding the kiss the man with the mic seemed to swear at the fan on live TV for his over-friendly behaviour.
