BRASILIA, Brazil, June 27 (UPI) -- There was a security breach at the World Cup base in Brasilia when a 15-year-old fan broke into Cristiano Ronaldo's room Thursday evening.

According to the Portuguese website Globo Esporte, Yago Leal scaled the outside of the hotel where Ronaldo was staying and broke in through his balcony window. Once he was inside, he spread himself across on Ronaldo's bed because "he knew he had laid on it."

Ronaldo found Leal and told him he wouldn't call security if he left. He also let him take a viral picture of him before he exited through the balcony and scaled back down the building.


Portugal is on its way home after it failed to advance to the knockout round despite a 2-1 win against Ghana.
