Dramatic Twitter footage posted by a Russian fan shows the escalator running at incredible speed, causing people to pile up and crash into each other at the bottom.

At least 20 people have reportedly been injured when a crowded escalator collapsed at a train station in Rome.

The station has been closed and emergency services are on scene, where injured fans are being stretchered to safety.

Separately, one CSKA fan was slashed with a knife during clashes between opposing fans outside the Stadio Olimpico, the ANSA news agency reported.

On Sunday, Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir described his death on Fox News as a "murder" and a " tremendous mistake ". The deal "will allow us to intervene to rebalance the market in any appropriate time from January onward", he said.

Only one of the people hurt is in a serious condition, a spokeswoman for Rome's civil protection department said, while the others were being treated for less serious injuries.

Sky Italia (via the UK's Daily Mirror) reports that the injured fans were from Russian Federation. The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported that one victim's foot was partially severed.

Witnesses say the football fans had been singing and jumping before the escalator gave way and footage shared on social media shows people piling up at the bottom.
