Al Wahda Al Ahly

After Abu-Dhabi football club Al Wahda's first-ever victory over the Jeddah-based Al Ahli team on Friday, a video of Al Wahda's president fainting went viral on Twitter.

In the video, president of the club Hatem Khimi was seen hugging a nearby spectator from the joys of winning when he gradually dropped to the floor.

The video has garnered more than 600,000 views in its time on Twitter, and people are losing it over the enthusiasm.

This is the first time a UAE team has secured a win over Al Ahli in a long time

According to King Fut, Brazilian player Marcos Guilherme scored a 100th-minute winner that led to the Al Wahda team's victory at the Saudi Super League.

This is the first win from the team too, after having lost to Al Ahli three games prior.
