CARDIFF, Wales (AP) - A pitch invader waving a Palestinian flag briefly held up the UEFA Super Cup match between Real Madrid and Sevilla on Tuesday.

The man appeared on the pitch in the closing stages of the showpiece fixture at the Cardiff City Stadium, and was taken away by stewards. European champion Real Madrid lifted the cup after winning 2-0.

Pro-Palestinian activism has been growing in Britain during the ongoing conflict between the Israeli military and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.
