Norwich City

When nature calls and it is in distress, Jonny Howson will be there to help...

There was plenty of action on Saturday to keep us all sorts of excited and happy – Spurs thumped Manchester City 4-1 and Newcastle United and Chelsea played a blinder.

However, if you missed West Ham United's clash with Norwich city at Upton Park, you probably missed our favourite moment of the season so far.

So what happened? Well, Canaries midfielder Jonny Howson decided to help save a rather distressed pigeon during the Premier League clash.

The 27-year-old spotted the pigeon who seemingly couldn't fly back out of stadium – now we reckon Norwich could have used the feathered chap to help search for a winner – but Howson picked it up and ran over to the sidelines. 

But what happened to the pigeon? Well, it seemingly was alright and managed to fly off leaving Jonny Howson the hero of the hour and will no doubt be telling his grandkids how he saved a pigeon...

Howson really is football's Ace Ventura...we just hope he washed his hands after the game!
