Roy Hodgson melts hearts with incredibly wholesome throw-in gag

Roy Hodgson has become the nation’s sweetheart when it comes to football and when he’s happy, so are we.

While his side only managed a 1-1 draw against Brighton on Sunday, there was a moment in the game where Roy just couldn’t help himself.

Picked up in Match of the Day’s ‘2 Good 2 Bad’ segment, cameras caught the Palace boss pretending to take a throw in and grinning from ear to ear with his own actions.

His joy went down a treat with viewers, as tons of them took to Twitter to revel in his antics.


Last year Hodgson became the oldest manager in Premier League history, overtaking Sir Bobby Robson in the standings.

Here’s hoping there’s many more years to come yet from Uncle Roy.
