The exhibition match between two major football clubs, Bursaspor and Fenerbahce, last Sunday was supposed to be the highlight that night, but with just his hand and a tobacco stick, this “kid” stole the show without having to run around the field wearing spiked shoes.
An alleged child wearing a green Bursaspor jersey was seen on camera smoking a cigarette, and viewers were displeased by the sight of a minor doing unhealthy, adult habits.
However, it wasn’t the intention of the camera personnel to put the Bursa fan into a bad position as it only happened while the reporter was conducting an interview on the pitch while the camera had to make some establishing shots, and it so happens that in one instance, it passed by the alleged minor while puffing a stick beside a child.

But it turns out that this smoking “kid” wasn’t a kid after all, as Yuregini Koy Ortaya of the Fenerbahce fan club pointed out. He only looked like one, and maybe it had something to do with the fact that an actual kid was right beside him.
The man was just of short stature and his groomed hairdo made him look like a child when he is clearly not after a separate shot of him where his older features are more apparent was circulated. When looked at closely, the man has wrinkles on his face and an old man’s gut.
The kid right next to him appears to be his son who is also watching the football match and was there to support what seems to be their betting team, Bursaspor.

Many speculate that this man is around the age of 36 but his age has not yet been confirmed. Whatever his age is, though, it didn’t free him of any legal repercussions as the sight of him smoking in public clearly violates the smoking regulations of Turkey.
This could be a potential reason for him not to reveal his age to the public so as to not get in the line of sight of the authorities.
