Midway through the second quarter of Monday Night Football, the spectator burst into the home and field end zone.

The protester – believed to be an animal rights activist – waved a pink smoke bomb as security rushed to make sure he did not approach the players.

But they needn’t worry, with two Rams players taking matters into their own hands.

Wagner – backed by Takkarist McKinley – quickly ended his free reign on the pitch by putting the invader on his back.

It was what happened moments before that caught the attention of some fans, however – including US sprint hero Michael Johnson.

The Olympian uploaded footage of the invader snatching a security guard, who appeared to fall heavily after his foot got caught in the turf.

Johnson captioned the video: “This idiot is disrupting the game.

“But look at the guy in the very black top of the screen injuring himself (ACL?) trying to stop him! Shit!”

And fans agreed with Johnson, with many sending their sympathies to the stricken man.

One said: “Yeah, I feel bad for the guy in black, I really hope he’s not hurt too much.”

While another added: “I’m thinking about the ruptured Achilles tendon.”

And a third said: “Ow. Hope the guy in black is okay.”

It capped a sad visit to San Fran for the Rams, who started the season in the shadow of their Super Bowl winner.
