One young South African fan was undeterred by his country's 5-0 thrashing at the hands of visiting Brazil on Wednesday. 

The young boy ran on the pitch after Brazil ran roughshod over the hosts, but the Brazilians embraced the lad. 

The resulting pictures were, well, amazing.

Neymar enjoyed the moment as much as the young fan did, posting the following on his Instagram page after the match.
