To borrow the words of Alex Ferguson, "football, bloody hell."

The sport has the power to bring out extreme emotions in all of us, from absolute despair to uninhibited ecstasy.

The was the latter feeling that Prince William was displaying at Wembley Stadium today. The royal was spending the UK Bank Holiday watching his beloved Aston Villa clinch promotion back to the Premier League courtesy of a 2-1 win over Derby County and naturally, the cameras sought him out for his reaction at the end. Judging by the below clip, he didn't hold back, jumping for joy and flinging his arms around ex-Villa striker John Carew.

The baseball cap just tops it off if you ask us. Aston Villa back where they belong. Congrats to Wills, Tom Hanks and all the rest of them.
