Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has spoken for the first time about the handball that saw France beat the Republic of Ireland to reach the 2010 World Cup in a qualification playoff in 2009.

Ireland had hoped to take the match down to the wire only for Henry to produce what came to be known as 'the hand of frog', named after Diego Maradona's famous handball goal against England at the 1986 World Cup, 'the hand of god'.

"It was a bad, very bad reaction, reflex, however you want to call it.



I didn't plan it."

The incident caused outrage after he twice handled the ball to prevent it from going out of play before sending it into the path of William Gallas to score.

And my hand came out, I crossed the ball to Gallas, ball went in.
