Crystal Palace’s 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on Sunday produced a few sizable talking points on Sunday, with the Eagles awarded an arguably soft penalty in the second-half.

However, Swedish sports channel Viasat were far more interested in an incident involving a wayward fan, who raced onto the pitch during the game, initially supping from a bottle of beer.

The pitch invader was duly rugby-tackled by a speedy steward and after the game had finished, Viasat analysed the challenge as though it had involved the players themselves.

To be fair, that challenge was indeed worthy of a feature all of its own.

Excellent stuff.

And give that steward a raise!
