Everton & USA keeper Tim Howard pulls off another timely block as a fan tries to hug him at LAX airport [Video]

Everton and USA keeper Tim Howard is one of the biggest sport stars in America at present, and his new found stardom was in evidence when he landed in Los Angeles airport on Thursday.

Howard was instantly recognised by fans as he walked through LAX to begin his well-earned vacation, and several fans gathered around the goalie for photos and autographs.

One fan, however, got too close.

Looking to lay a hug on the Everton stopper, Howard showed that he doesn’t like his personal space being invaded as he produced a timely block on the touchy-feely fan.
