One of Britain's most well known football hooligans managed to get in to Carrow Road on Saturday to watch Norwich City take on Leeds United despite being banned for life by the Canaries' rivals.
Leeds United supporter Aaron Cawley, 25, was captured by TV cameras hugging defender Pontus Jansson after he scored an equalising goal in United's 3-2 victory over Norwich.
Cawley was able to get a ticket and watch his team despite being banned for life by the club after he ran onto the pitch and punched Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland in 2012.
Cawley, from Cheltenham, was also jailed for 16 weeks and given a six-year football banning order by the courts for that offence.
But according to reports he managed to get the court order lifted by magistrates in Sheffield last week.
Norwich City led at half-time only for Leeds to turn the game on its head with goals through Pontus Jansson and Chris Wood.
Kyle Lafferty got the Canaries back on terms on 87 minutes, but Ronaldo Vieira came back to haunt City again when his long range shot in stoppage time squirmed past Michael McGovern.
