Wigan's Ryan Colclough Scores Twice, Gets Subbed Off, Runs Down Tunnel, Makes Birth Of Son
Sevilla might have produced a three goal comeback in the Champions League last night, but an unlikely source has officially secured the feel good story of the year.
After scoring a brace against Doncaster last night, Wigan's Ryan Colclough raised eyebrows when he sprinted down the tunnel in the 60th minute. Was he seriously injured? Many questioned his motives, but it became clear just minutes after full-time.
Colclough sprinted down the tunnel to make it to the hospital. He wanted to see the birth of his child and nothing was going to stop him.
Still in his full kit, the Wigan winger posted a picture on Twitter not long after scoring twice, proudly holding his newborn in an incredible picture.
"What a great result and team effort from all the boys!" Colclough wrote on his Twitter account.
"I'm so happy to mark the birth of my second son with two goals and the win. He made it a hat-trick for me! Appreciate all the messages! #UpTheTics"

BBC Sport report that both mother and his second son, who weighed in at 8lbs 6ozs, are "doing very well". Colclough said he was "overwhelmed" with a great night both on and off the pitch.
The perfect hat-trick is now a thing and Wigan's Ryan Colclough is the lucky lad to record this incredible story.
