Despite being 3-2 down as the clock ticked over into the 94th minute, Newcastle somehow still managed to wrangle a victory out of last night’s Championship blow-out against Norwich at St James’ Park.

A 95th-minute equaliser from Yoan Gouffran was swiftly followed by a manic 96th-minute winner from Dwight Gayle, with the mood inside the stadium perhaps best described as ‘ecstatic’ as the final whistle sounded almost immediately thereafter.

The jubilant atmosphere was best encapsulated in a brilliant image captured by freelance photographer Richard Lee (@richleephoto) as Toon striker Aleksandar Mitrovic gave Rafa Benitez an absolutely enormous bearhug.

Of course, it didn’t take long before the fine folk of Twitter stuck their oars in…

Cracking stuff, and just a little something for the religious pseuds at the end there too.
