Overjoyed Newcastle player scares, then hugs pitch invader after goal

Also, he goes full Petey Pablo with the goal celebration.

Aleksandar Mitrović is the best and so is this pitch-invading fan who's probably going to jail.

There's just so much happiness here, and for good reason. Newcastle have been held scoreless against their rivals Sunderland for the last three years, and they would have been relegation favorites if they lost this Tyne-Wear Derby. He's so happy with his goal that he tries to jump into the arms of a fan who really shouldn't have been there, and the fan ducks out of the way in utter fear. But he quickly realizes that Mitrović isn't attacking him, pops up and everyone hugs it out.
