When Novara earned promotion to Serie A last week it was certainly a reason to celebrate but nobody went quite as far as the team's 36-year-old goalkeeper Alberto "Jimmy" Fontana.

Fontana, who is not even the club's first choice stopper, hurled his body into an interview backdrop, screamed like crazy, interrupted interviews, went around shooting off a fire extinguisher in his underpants, and just in general went crazy with happiness.

Such passion has to commended though, especially it all came on the day that Novara won their return to the country's top flight for the first time in 55 years.

Anyway, this is one display of passion that needs to be seen to be believed so have a look at the video below and leave us your thoughts.
