An over-enthusiastic fan caused a brief security scare in the afternoon session of the third day of the first Test between India and South Africa. 
A young fan rushed on the field to get a selfie with the India captain Virat Kohli.
Kohli, who is treated as a national hero in India, was taken by surprise by the intrusion in between overs when the youth tried to hug him before taking a picture and touching the star player's feet.
Kohli tried to order the teenager off and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane also intervened but the persistent fan stayed on the field for more than two minutes.
Security officers eventually overpowered him as he tried to run, while the crowd roared and clapped.
