A person supporting Palestine interrupted the World Cup final by running onto the pitch

During the ICC World Cup final in India, a pro-Palestinian protester breached security cordons, interrupting play in the 14th over of India’s innings. Wearing a face mask representing the Palestinian flag and a T-shirt with the messages “Stop Bombing Palestine” and “Free Palestine,” the protester approached superstar batsman Virat Kohli, hugging him before being escorted off the pitch by security officers. The individual, later identified as John from Australia, stated that he entered the pitch to meet Kohli and expressed his support for Palestine. The incident occurred at the mega-stadium in Ahmedabad, with play resuming promptly after the interruption.
