Age is definitely mellowing Roy Keane if last night's ITV football coverage is to be believed.
Keane and his former arch enemy Frenchman Patrick Vieira enjoyed a very public reunion as they appeared on TV together before Manchester City's Champions League match against Villarreal.
Keane, who is working as a football pundit for the station, and Vieira, who works for Man City as a football development executive, were filmed smiling and chatting on the pitch before the match began.
It's a far cry from their playing days when the pair exchanged harsh words and even harsher blows whenever their then teams Manchester United and Arsenal met.
The most famous incident was in 2005 when the pair had to be separated by the referee in the tunnel at Highbury before the game had even begun.
