David Beckham Catches Young Fan Running On Field During Gary Neville Testimonial Match (VIDEO)

During the second half of Manchester United's Gary Neville testimonial match (which is basically a scrimmage, or "friendly," where players pay tribute to a great player who's retiring) against Juventus on Tuesday, a young fan stormed the field during a stop in play.

Beckham was lining up to take a corner kick at the time, and once he saw the young pitch invader evading security, he waited until the kid ran in his direction, and then calmly wrapped him up in a bear hug so the ground's stewards could grab him.
