The man who’s fa­mous for drink­ing pint at rugby

IF you were watch­ing the Wales v Scot­land match on TV at the week­end you won’t have failed to no­tice the chap in the crowd so en­am­oured with his pint that he was prob­a­bly the most fa­mous man in Wales over the week­end.

Well, now we’ve found out who that man is and what has hap­pened since the bril­liant clip ap­peared on the BBC and was sub­se­quently shared all over so­cial me­dia.

His name is Kris­tian and he lives in Aber­dare. The 25-year-old said his phone hasn’t stopped since.

Kris­tian, who was at the match with his mates from Aber­dare, said: “I’ll put (my phone) down and come back to 30-odd no­ti­fi­ca­tions. Most of it is stick but I’m find­ing it funny.”

The English­man added: “It’s a bit sur­real. I’m not keep­ing track but peo­ple are send­ing pic­tures and screen­shots about the views and retweets. My phone died in the sta­dium so I didn’t re­ally know the ex­tent and af­ter a few I wasn’t too both­ered. The girl in front told us. I laughed and just got on with the night.”

The most im­por­tant ques­tion, though, is what was so de­li­cious about his drink at that point?

Kris­tian told us: “It was a Strong­bow Dark Fruits and it was nice and cold. I can’t think what else it could’ve been!”

We also spoke to Lisa Fran­cis who was sat in front of Kris­tian belt­ing out the an­them pas­sion­ately.

“I woke up this morn­ing and my face – well, my ton­sils – were ev­ery­where,” said Lisa, 33, from Tre­orchy.

“A cou­ple of the girls text me ask­ing me to re­mem­ber them when I’m fa­mous and for my au­to­graph.

“My fi­ance – who’s English – even told me he was go­ing to take the door frame down be­cause my head wouldn’t fit through there.”
