Here's the moment former Blades star Keith Gillespie CROWDSURFED above ecstatic Northern Ireland fans celebrating their team's Euro 2016 win over Ukraine.

TV and radio presenter Colin Murray filmed the former Northern Ireland international being hoisted aloft and carried along the streets of Lyon as fans partied hard after yesterday's 2-0 win.

The 20 second clip, which he tweeted to his 138,000 followers, shows jubilant fans chanting the player's name as he is dragged over the heads of supporters while others film the scenes on their mobile phones.

Murray's tweet was accompanied by four "crying with laughter" emojis and has been retweeted more than 1,000 times.

The Northern Ireland born former Match Of The Day host is in France to cover the football championships for Talksport.

Gillespie, Northern Ireland's sixth most capped player with 86 appearances, made nearly 100 starts for the Blades from 2005-09, netting four goals.

He is best recalled at Bramall Lane for an incident in 2007 when during a Premier League match against Reading at the Madejski Stadium, he was sent off for violent conduct, twelve seconds after coming on as a substitute, achieving the dubious honour of becoming the fastest sending-off of a substitute in English football.

Since he was sent off before the ball had come back into play, he was technically sent off being on the pitch for zero seconds of play.
