West Ham's debutant goalkeeper David Martin hopped over the Stamford Bridge advertising boards and climbed up the stairs, as if he was Pat Cash and this was the 1987 Wimbledon final.
He found his father, Alvin, the club legend who was sat among the journalists in the press box and had just seen his son keep his first Premier League clean sheet.
Both were in tears as they embraced. Journeyman David is 33 years old and only found out on the morning of the match that he would be making his debut.
David Martin was overcome with emotion after keeping a clean sheet on Premier League debut
Martin's West Ham team-mates ran straight up to him to celebrate with him at the final whistle
His pre-match meal was two pieces of toast but he could not bring himself to eat any of it.
Aaron Cresswell, who scored the only goal of the game on Saturday, poked fun at David for his untouched plate. The nerves of replacing Roberto the Ridiculous had him crippled.
You would have never known that by watching his commanding performance against Chelsea.
The West Ham fans loved it. Every save was celebrated. Every catch cheered. 'There's only one David Martin,' they sang. What a relief it was for them to see a goalkeeper doing his job.
He went into the stands to share emotional moment with his Hammers legend father
