Storm Doris has been battering Ireland and the UK in brutal fashion, but it had a positive impact for Cardiff Met FC player Gareth Emanuel.

With the winds howling in a game against Sterling University, Emanuel swung a corner in the box that quickly gathered pace and became an unstoppable missile that flew past a bewildered goalkeeper.

It helped Cardiff Met win the game 2-0 and even if the conditions were not suitable to playing any kind of sport, the match has produced a goal that will doubtless be viewed many times over around the world.
