A new YouTube clip has emerged of the 59-year-old picking up the ball at least 30 yards out, before smashing it home over the unsuspecting goalkeeper.

It’s thought that Waddle was making a guest appearance for Long Bennington Veterans in the “hotly contested” Olivia Hinton Trophy.

As well as playing in veteran football matches, Waddle also works as a commentator and pundit.
