Emmanuel Petit surprises Irish fan with trip of a lifetime to Euro 2016

This lucky Irish fan got to live the dream - by having a work day interrupted by a legendary footballer bearing gifts.

In this case, it was tickets to Ireland's final Euro 2016 group game against Italy, and the fan, Ronan, was understandably shocked when Arsenal and France legend Emmanuel Petit showed up during office hours to surprise him.

That's one lucky supporter - for his sake, hopefully Ireland are still in the hunt for the knockout stages when the Italy game rolls around.
