Here are the best jokes that Twitter had to offer as Emile Heskey scored his first goal since Boxing Day 2014, sparking a Bolton fightback at Charlton.

The 37-year-old’s tap-in made him the oldest goal-scorer in the Championship this season and provided the impetus for Neil Lennon’s Wanderers to claim a 2-2 draw from two goals down against their fellow strugglers.

Although Bolton remain rooted to the foot of the table and in dire financial straits, they at least have Heskey’s goal – and these ensuing jokes – to cherish…

If Heskey bags against us tonight I'm legit going to end my life #cafc

Heskey has scored for Bolton, and at the tender age of 37 he's like a fine wine, getting better with age #BWFC pic.twitter.com/j1jfRYGCsi

My team lost a two goal lead, at home, sparked by a strike from a 38 year old Emile Heskey last night. This season is hard to watch. #CAFC
