Sport events have no shortage of entertaining episodes.

This time Mediamax Sport presents meetings that involved animals: it turns out they love sport no less than humans and don’t miss an opportunity to “attend” the match of a favorite team or player.

This cat not only intruded in the Tigers vs. Real Salt Lake match, but also fought to keep the ball to itself.

Cats’ love for football is especially noteworthy – they seem to disrupt games most often in England. This intruder forced the referee to halt the match, because the cat ran along the players.

The bird Viktor Troicki is looking at had better manners: after landing in the main court of Melbourne park in the middle of an Australia Open match, it gave the attendees a few seconds for admiration and then returned the court to the tennis players.

Contrary to Troicki, goalkeeper Guillaume Faivre isn’t admiring the furry intruder: he is ushering the marten off the field so the game can resume.
