AWESOME! Swansea boss Monk happy for Gomis over French tribute

Swansea City boss Garry Monk was delighted with Bafetimbi Gomis' goal celebration for their draw with West Ham United.

Gomis rose highest at a 74th-minute corner with his header striking a post and going in off Hammers captain Kevin Nolan for what will probably go down as an own goal.

But Gomis wheeled away in delight and ran to the Swansea bench where he was handed a French flag, holding it aloft in respect of the 17 people who lost their lives in the Paris terrorist attacks this week.

"I thought that was a really nice touch," Monk said after the Barclays Premier League spoils were shared.

"He is very passionate about his country and where he is from and that showed in his celebration and why he got the flag."
