Glenavon boss Gary Hamilton - caught up in the euphoria of his second Irish Cup win in three seasons - obviously lost the run of himself as he swore live on BBC television.

Glenavon triumphed over Linfield in the showpiece final at Windsor Park to lift their seventh Irish Cup.

Goals from Kevin Braniff and Andy Hall either side of the break sealed a 2-0 victory for the Lurgan Blues.

Moments after the game, boss Gary Hamilton was interviewed live by BBC reporter Thomas Kane.

"Everyone of the players, from one to 11, even the subs were F*****g brilliant," he said before quickly cutting himself short.

While Hamilton may have forgotten for a moment he was live on the television and in countless Northern Ireland homes, others took advantage of it.

Glenavon assistant boss Paul Millar took the time to pay his own special thanks to veteran commentator Jackie Fullerton who was calling his last match for the BBC at the cup final
