"A protocol on a minor violation of the public order has been produced and the decision has been made to issue a fine of 30 euros," Julija Samorokovskaja, spokeswoman of Vilnius police, told BNS Lithuania on Friday.

The incident took place in the second half of the game when Ronaldo was about to leave the pitch after substitution. The fan ran on the pitch and asked for a selfie with the football star. He was soon taken away by security guards.

The Lithuanian Football Federation is facing a fine from the UEFA for the incident.
