Real Madrid faced Milan in Shanghai and the pre-match festivities proved all too much for one young mascot.
Everything started out well enough for the boy as he walked out with Pepe…
But then he must have realized the danger in his midst and wandered off in tears. The Real Madrid players, meanwhile, seemed unsure how to react.
Madrid went on to beat Milan 10–9 in a penalty shootout to claim the International Champions Cup China division trophy. Nonetheless, the crying mascot is presumably a Milan fan now.
