The world of football fell in love with James Rodriguez after his dazzling performances for Colombia including that special goal which won goal of the tournament.
However, the Colombian forward is already a legend amongst Real Madrid fans after he saved a pitch invader from heavy-handed security during his unveiling at the Bernabeu yesterday.

The exuberant Madrid fan ran onto the pitch yesterday to grab a moment with his hero and Rodriguez, unlike many other players would have done, did not shy away from the invader and embraced him with both arms.
And when security guards in their numbers tried to ground the fan the former Monaco player was very quick to intervene, saving him from a very painful arrest.
What a legend.
