Several Benfica fans ran onto the pitch to celebrate with their team after the victory, but the police officers stopped them from advancing further.

And seeing how a police officer was crushing a fan onto the ground, Jesus suddenly waded into the fracas.

The 59-year-old tactician tried to rescue one shirtless supporter as he wrestled with several stewards who were trying to escort him off the pitch.

The extraordinary scenes only came to an end when Jesus was eventually pulled away and shepherded out of harm's way by security guards and Benfica officials.
