Viewers were left in hysterics after witnessing Thierry Henry's reaction upon being told colleague Kate Abdo is set to be engaged.
The pair have struck up a fond relationship during their days working for CBS on Champions League nights over the last few years. And fans even suggested Abdo was the reason why Henry turned down a coaching position at Paris Saint-Germain earlier in 2023.
And it looks as though the revelation of Abdo's engagement came as a shock to the Arsenal legend on Tuesday evening. The two were sat alongside one another for an evening of European football when the multilingual presenter said she had news to share that Henry, Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher 'didn't know'.

Some might suggest it's reading a little too closely between the lines, but it's difficult to deny Henry's immediate reaction was anything but pleased. In fact, the Frenchman looked as though he had to take a deep breath, with one spectator suggesting 'he almost threw up on the table'.
That's in stark contrast to the applause of Carragher and Richards, both of whom sounded far more pleased for their presenting partner. And all the while, Henry remained perfectly quiet while fiddling with his jacket – though it's also possible he was aware of his reactions and playing to the public.
"We have a big announcement coming up in our first game," said Abdo shortly before turning to her fellow CBS stars. "Make sure you stay with us for that. You lot don't know what it is, do you?"
Carragher correctly guessed 'are you getting engaged' before Abdo confirmed the news, adding: "He doesn't know yet, but yes!" Former Liverpool defender Jamie whooped in response, while Richards had to double-check the news in front of a silent Henry.

Another viewer commented the Gunners icon 'looked mortified', while a third joked: "Why [did] they even zoom in on him? Messed up."
"Bro wasn't happy," added a fourth social media user, and another added: "He can leave now that was the only reason he stayed."
Abdo, 42, was previously married to German businessman Ramtin Abdo before the pair were divorced. It's believed her new husband-to-be is American DAZN boxing podcaster and radio host Barak Bess, though the two keep their relationship private.
