Before the Champions League final, there was total chaos around the stadium. And he is right in the middle: Andri Ragettli. The freeski star experiences his very personal, tumultuous episode in front of the gates of the Stade de France.

Full of anticipation, the ardent Real Madrid fan awaits entry. Then it happens: A brazen thief snaps and cheekily steals his valid ticket. “Two meters from the entrance, a guy stole our ticket, he tried to run away,” writes Ragettli on Instagram.
Kick the legs
The thief didn’t reckon with the nimble and ultra-manoeuvrable Bündner. ‘Nice try, but you won’t be faster than me! So I chased him and kicked him in the legs to stop him.”
Ragettli bone dry: “That would certainly have been a red card.” The police take the guilty person into custody. Ragettli can also be seen in the photo that documents the arrest and ends up on the Instagram channel of “The Telegraph”. He proudly writes about this post: “Look mom, I’m on the news.”
The match between Liverpool and Real Madrid (0:1) starts 36 minutes late because of the fan turmoil. Ragettli: “The organization of the game was just pure chaos.” (yup)
