It took the effort of four groundsmen, a player welfare official, a body scanner and a magnet to trace the ornament.

Diop started the match as a substitute, with David Moyes introducing him midway the second half in place of Angelo Ogbonna who was injured.

And as is customary, the player had to take off the ring before making it into the pitch.

However, Sun Sport reports the defender dropped it on the floor before he was able to get hold of it and hand it over to West Ham's Head of Player Care, Hugo Scheckter.

Scheckter was left with no choice but to get to his hands and knees in a desperate search for the ring.

He would later take to Twitter to reveal they eventually found the ring with the help of others including four groundsmen.

But that was not the only cause for celebration for Diop as his side went on to win the match thanks to Tomas Soucek's 91st strike. 

The win took the Hammers to 11th on the standings with 11 points after eight rounds of matches.
