Videos of the 39-year-old pestering the Argentina players after they won the World Cup went viral and left people scratching their heads wondering how this short tan man was allowed onto the pitch.
Lionel Messi seemed equally bemused when he turned around and noticed Salt Bae tugging on his arm.

The Turkish chef seemed to be all ‘buddy buddy’ with FIFA president Gianni Infantino, which could explain his VIP access.
But since Salt Bae has started to receive backlash from the general public, Infantino has decided to unfollow him on Instagram.
The Turkish chef could find himself in even more trouble as FIFA has allegedly launched an investigation into how he was granted access to the pitch.
