It wasn’t a great night for Tottenham Hotspur in Monaco.

A 2-1 loss against the French side has seen them crash out of the group stages of the Champions League, and they will now hope they can finish third to qualify for the Europa League.

However, there is one man in the Spurs side that can hold his head high despite defeat.

That man, of course, is Hugo Loris.

Not only did the Frenchman save a Radamel Falcao penalty in the first-half, but he made a simply incredible save in the second-half.

After Kamil Glik connected with a swinging free-kick from the left, Lloris showed unbelievable reactions to somehow tip his volley over.

It was just ridiculous.

Check it out below:

Twitter exploded after seeing his heroics and duly reacted. Here are the best tweets:

Of course, this isn’t the first time Lloris has produced something stupendous in the Champions League for Spurs this season. He somehow managed to keep out Javier Hernandez’s effort for Bayer Leverkusen last month as they drew 0-0 in Germany.

However, despite all of his work in this Champions League campaign, Lloris won’t be competing in Europe’s elite competition after the new year.

After five matches, the north Londoners have picked up just four points, leaving them seven points behind Monaco and three points behind Leverkusen - being unable to overhaul them due to their inferior head-to-head record.

They host CSKA Moscow in their final group game, knowing a draw would be enough for them to qualify for Europa League football.
