Zaha and Harry the Hornet: peace breaks out
Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha was mocked for diving by Watford mascot Harry the Hornet after yesterday's 1-1 draw, but the forward appeared to make peace on Twitter.
There was a furore at the end of Crystal Palace's 1-1 draw against Watford on Boxing Day as Harry the Hornet, Watford's bright yellow and black mascot, dived in mocking imitation of Palace striker Wilfried Zaha, who then had to be restrained. Sam Allardyce then lashed out at the mascot after the game.
Zaha and Harry the Hornet: at peace on Twitter
But a day later and it looks like bridges have been built, fences mended and hatchets buried, with an outbreak of peace in dive-gate. Zaha turned to Twitter to rate Harry the Hornet's dive...
With the buzzing mascot replying in turn (though notably scoring Zaha a lowly 7, compared to the scores he'd been awarded by the striker).

I officially support @1HHornet.— Adam Leventhal (@AdamLeventhal) 27 December 2016
He wouldn't have gone down if there wasn't any contact, he's a stand up guy & simply not that type of mascot
My main worry for the transfer window is that a bigger club might come in with an ridiculous offer for @1HHornet.— Hornblogger (@Hornblogger) 27 December 2016
