The Twitter video, with the caption ‘Newcastle fan trying to steal a shirt from a kid… lovely Christmas spirit’, displays an older lady clutching on tightly to the jersey, with her hand in a vice-like grip around it as the son and his father look to keep hold of it.

One supporter in the middle then tries to lever it out of the woman’s grip, pointing at the boy to indicate he is freeing it from her grasp for the child, as the tussle continued. 

Most will be pleased to know that the boy eventually got the prize after the shocking tug-of-war, with stewards forced to step in to mediate the dispute.

The Magpies beat Leicester 3-0 on Monday at the King Power Stadium, with Chris Wood, Miguel Almiron and Joelinton on the scoresheet. 

Dan Burn had thrown his shirt into the stands as a gesture of appreciation for the visiting fans’ support, with the lucky youngster pulling in his prize. 

A message shared on Twitter, seemingly from the boy’s mother, said: ‘The bloke in the red was getting the shirt for my son but the lady was trying to snatch the shirt from my son’s arms, but the stewards got involved and got the shirt.’

A message, apparently from the boy's mum, clarified that the stewards had to get involved
