Due to a lack of fluids in the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium, fans were left dehydrated in the blazing heat of Seville.

As reported by footballscotland, the Scottish side's SLO revealed before kick-off that the club had been forced to contact officials over the supply of water amid the boiling conditions.

UEFA has since apologised to those affected by the lack of fluids, and insisted they couldn't cope with the "extraordinary demand".

During the final, 33-year-old Balogun reportedly noticed that a number of fans were struggling in the heat and took some water over to them.

One Gers supporter thanked the Nigerian international for his gesture, suggesting that he and others 'wouldn't have survived' without it.
