Did you spot the Tongan boxer wearing the Celtic jersey during the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony last night?

Fair play to Lomalito Moala, he knows his audience.

Moala, who is based in Sydney and won a bronze medal at the 2010 Games in Delhi, had said that he would wear the Hoops jersey at the opening ceremony at Celtic Park if a tweet promising to do so was retweeted 100 times, a figure that was reached comfortably well within an hour earlier this week.

Fair play to Moala, he was as good as his word and though he might be representing a land approximately 10,000 miles away from Glasgow, the home crowd will no doubt treat him as one of their own after this gesture.
