FANS of Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr were swarmed by a hoard of LOCUSTS midway through their latest match.
Al-Nassr travelled to Mecca on Thursday night for their Saudi Pro League match with Al-Wehda at the King Abdulaziz Sports City Stadium.
The stadium was packed to the rafters with footy fans eager to get a glimpse of five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo.
And it seemed that a swarm of locusts were also keen on seeing the former Manchester United man in action.
According to reports, an almost biblical swarm of locusts descended into the stadium midway through the match.
Photos on Twitter showed hundreds of grasshoppers all over fans and the seats.
