16-year-old Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf would be riding a huge high right now after won a huge $3 million by winning the Fortnite World Cup, and last night had his home "swatted".

Kyle was live streaming Fortnite at the time and mid-match his Dad comes to his door and says that armed police were at the door, looking for him. Kyle leaves the stream leaving his team mates questioning where he went, but after 10 minutes he returns.

Once he returns, Kyle said: "They come in with guns, bro. They literally pulled up, holy shit". Kyle streams daily to his audience of over 640,000 followers, so being swatted at this level is kinda crazy.

He also took to Twitter with a simple tweet of 'kinda wild' in reference to being swatted:
