A Hertha Berlin fan was arrested for publicly masturbating during their match against Schalke

Twitter

Stewards quickly came to stop the man from pleasuring himself

Images appeared on social media of the man, in his 20s, sprawled on the away terraces with his jeans lowered – and his hand making a seemingly rude action.

He is then seen to be surrounded by a group of stewards, while other Hertha fans stand nearby apparently unconcerned.

The man was ejected from Schalke's Veltins Arena and was reportedly arrested after a struggle with police.

He now faces indecency and assault charges.

Twitter user dueSe04 posted the pictures on Sunday.

The Schalke fan wrote: "This really happened in the Arena yesterday. Unbelievable."

The pictures were later deleted, but not before being viewed thousands of times.

They later appeared in several German newspapers.

Marko Pjaca scored the only goal of the match to give Schalke the win

Hertha failed to rise to the occasion on the pitch.

A first-half strike from Marko Pjaca dealt them the knock-out blow, and they slumped to 12th in the Bundesliga.

Ex-Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou and former Manchester City defender Karim Rekik currently play for the capital city club – together with Swiss international Fabian Lustenberger.
