Pensive Keegan

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

In the live updates from BBC Sports today, Caroline Cheese described Keegan as looking pensive.

Pensive? Is it not an object that is used to keep memories? Or is that only in the world of Harry Potter?

Whenever in doubt, google.

From googling, I found out that pensive is an adjective and the object used to keep memories in the world of Harry Potter is not a pensive but rather, a pensieve.

According to

Pensive - adjective: expressing or revealing thoughtfulness, usually marked by some sadness

Allah knows best.
