Invergordon's Tom Stoltman was a goalkeeping hero in Soccer Aid for Unicef this evening.
He saved a penalty from comedian Russell Howard in a decisive shoot-out after the game at West Ham's London Stadium finished 2-2.
The World's Strongest Man, from Invergordon, was among the celebrities in the Rest of the World team that faced England.
The teams were made up of celebrities including the likes of Usain Bolt and former footballers like Cafu and Roberto Carlos.
Stoltman was praised for his agile performance despite commentators fearing the worst after singer Tom Grennan put England 2-1 ahead moments into the second half – their first attack after the Highlander came on at half-time.
But a colossal display between the posts was topped off with the penalty shoot-out win.
Grennan put England's first shoot-out spot-kick over the bar before Stoltman saved Howard's effort, keeping the score at 2-0.
Mark Wright scored past Stoltman to make it 3-1, but actor Lee Mack netted the winner for a 4-1 victory.
