Roy Hodgson's Reaction To Taking A Throw-In Is Incredibly Wholesome
| Last updated
Roy Hodgson was incredibly pleased with his throw-in joke during Crystal Palace vs Brighton and cameras caught him grinning from ear to ear.
Palace welcomed Graham Potter's side to Selhurst Park on Sunday and the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
But following the game, Match of the Day 2's '2 Good 2 Bad' segment picked up Palace boss Hodgson having a bit of fun on the sidelines.
The 73-year-old took the ball and threw it to a player over his head, an act he was incredibly pleased with.
Fans think it could be one of the most wholesome moments of the entire season.

On the pitch, Wilfried Zaha gave The Eagles a first-half lead from the penalty spot after Tariq Lamptey hauled down Michy Batshuayi.
Brighton had the lion's share of possession and got an equaliser in stoppage time through Alexis Mac Allister.
Seagulls captain Lewis Dunk would get sent off moments later for a high boot on Gary Cahill.
Hodgson spoke after the game and despite Zaha scoring from the spot, he thinks the Ivorian international can offer a lot more.
"I always think that with a player of his ability, he has got more to offer," he told Evening Standard. "We have so much faith in his ability and always feel, with a bit of luck, there's more there to give.
"What I will be preaching to him for the rest of the season is that a player of your ability has got more to give and it is not sufficient to just score a few more goals than last season.
"I want to see him create havoc in the opponents' defence and he didn't really do that today."
