Photos: Younes Kaboul is absolutely thrilled to see Lloris, Walker and Lamela

The Sunderland centre-back looked delighted to be reunited with his former Tottenham Hotspur team-mates.

Former Tottenham man Younes Kaboul was thrilled to be re-united with the likes of Kyle Walker, Hugo Lloris and Erik Lamela at full-time on Sunday afternoon, despite seeing his Sunderland side lose to his ex-employers.

Ryan Mason scored a late winner for the north London side at the Stadium of Light and the Black Cats were left empty handed on Wearside.

But the Frenchman was still all smiles at the final whistle, posing with his former Tottenham counterparts - and giving out plenty of hugs.

As Opta stats show, Kaboul certainly didn't make a fool of himself against his old club, despite making a very poor start indeed to his Sunderland career.

V Tottenham, the 29-year-old was very much up for the battle, winning one more tackles than Spurs counterparts Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, rating similarly to both in terms of clearances and winning far more headers.

The Sunderland man was up against a greater amount of pressure, of course, especially in the second half. Ultimately, meanwhile, his efforts didn't equate to any points.

He was, nevertheless, delighted to see the likes of Walker, Lloris and Lamela. And there was plenty of man love on show in the post-match pictures...
