Man tries to sneak into Champions League final disguised as steward

Tickets were pretty much impossible to get hold of for the Champions League final on Saturday unless you were very rich, lucky or Sepp Blatter - and he's all three.  One cheeky chap decided to disguise himself and get in.  DID HE MANAGE?
