Former France star Thierry Henry has revealed what he told Republic of Ireland players after his infamous handball during a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
The Arsenal legend set William Gallas up for the winning goal in the play-off with help of his hand, which went unnoticed by the officials at the time.
Les Blues went on to qualify for the World Cup in South Africa, but Henry was widely criticised for the handball.
The 1998 World Cup winner has now revealed that he admitted to Ireland players that he handled the ball in the lead-up to the goal.
"You are talking about people I spent so many times on the pitch with," Henry told Canal+, according to the Daily Mirror.
"I just said to them, 'Yes, it was hand, I'm sorry.' And you know what? They told me: 'We don't blame you.'
"I spoke honestly – it was a reflex. A reflex by a competitor, just like when you reach out for the ball on the line when your goalkeeper is beaten."
