Like a ghost in the night
James Bond, Jack Ryan, Ethan Hunt, Jason Bourne - these are just a number of the best and most talented spies in popular culture. They get in, cause some damage, do what they have to do and get out without anyone even knowing they were there.
All of those great names pale in comparison to one person though. To be honest, 'person' might even be too substantive a word to describe him, such is his floating, ghost-like presence. Perhaps 'figure' is a better choice.
Who is he? We do not know. But what we do know is that on Saturday afternoon, during a BT Sport interview with Javia Gracia after Watford's FA Cup win over Crystal Palace, he flew in and out of ours eye lines with the sort of speed and stealth that would make ninjas clench their fists with envy.
In many ways writing this article is essentially pointless, because I can't even be sure that I ever even saw him on my screen, such was his grace, poise and speed.
Maybe we all imagined the whole thing, maybe this Watford steward was never even there at all. Watch the clip below and make up your own mind.
