World Cup final streaker ran onto pitch and attempted to plant big kiss on star

The 2014 World Cup final between Germany and Argentina was briefly interrupted by a pitch invader who tried his very best to plant a kiss on defender Benedikt Howedes.

Russian comedian Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, who had the words 'natural born prankster' written on his body, ran onto the playing surface with his shirt pulled over his head with the scores still level before Mario Gotze's winner.

The YouTube celebrity tried to plant a kiss on Howedes but was pushed away, before being brutally taken out by stewards – and landing hard on his neck in the process.

Vitaly, who was once a professional skateboarder, has always enjoyed some global exposure and even starred in an adult film.

Born in Russia and once living in Ukraine, the prankster grew up in Florida and began posting comedy videos on YouTube in 2012.

Having been arrested for his 2014 pitch invasion, he was also arrested for trespassing after climbing the Hollywood sign in 2016 and arrested for streaking during Game 4 of the NBA Finals the same year.

Another arrest came when he ran onto the field during the 2017 World Series, and spent five days in jail for climbing the Pyramids of Giza in 2020.

Vitaly's most recent appearance came when he ran onto the pitch in the 2022 World Cup clash between Argentina and the Netherlands, with his girlfriend repping his Vitaly Uncensored brand during her own pitch invasion at the 2019 Champions League final.

Kinsey Wolanski wore a very revealing one piece outfit when interrupting the final between Liverpool and Tottenham, later taking to social media to take the credit.

She said: "STREAKING THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE! Life is for living, do crazy things that you will remember forever."

She later went on to add: "I definitely wasn’t prepared for what was to follow that game.

"But going into it I was excited to push things to the limit and see where it would go as I love living life to the fullest!

"I’m very thankful for that experience as it grew my platform that I now have to share and connect with a wider audience across the world."
