Champions League final pitch invader Kinsey Wolanski has revealed she and her boyfriend were arrested in their botched bid to disrupt the Copa America final between Brazil and Peru.

Wolanski hit the headlines as Liverpool beat Tottenham to win their sixth European crown in Madrid by invading the pitch in a skimpy swimsuit.

She was escorted off the pitch at the Wanda Metropolitano by security and she has now admitted she and YouTuber boyfriend Vitaly Zdorovetskiy were plotting a similar stunt as Brazil beat Peru on Sunday evening.

The duo dressed as Brazilian fans and made it to their seats before Vitaly was 'tackled by 20 security guards' and the pair were jailed.

Wolanski wrote on Instagram: "I'll admit Copa America you definitely won but we had one hell of an adventure trying.

"Flew to Brazil, dressed up in disguise, made it to our seats and it ended in Vitaly's bad ass getting tackled by 20 security guards.

Wolanski also shared a clip of herself in jail with Zdorovetskiy and later a further video of the food they were eating after being freed.

Alongside the burgers, chips and desserts, she wrote: "Did you even go to jail if you don't have a feast cheat meal after?"

Wolanski's followers on Instagram sky-rocketed from 230,000 to over two million following her stunt in Madrid.

At the time, she told The Sun: "By the time I'm 30 I plan on making enough money to retire, and streaking at the Champions League will only help me achieve that.

"I plan to do a lot more streaking to raise my profile.

"After I was released from jail I had gone from 300,000 followers on Instagram to over two million. You can't buy that kind of publicity.

"The response has been unbelievable, I couldn't be happier. It was the biggest thrill of my life."
