In the Official Arsenal Magazine, Arsenal's first-team stars tell us about their daily routine. Read on to find out more about a day in the life of Aaron Ramsey!

What time do you usually get up in the morning?
About quarter to nine, so that I can get ready, have breakfast and go into training at about quarter past.

What's your first drink of the day?
I always have a cup of tea.

What do you usually eat for breakfast?
Some cereal with oats and some fruit.

Do you read the newspaper?
No, not normally.

Before heading to training, is there anything else that you generally do?
I always have a shower as soon as I get up, but that's about it really.

How long does it take you to drive to the training ground?
About 15 minutes.

And what car do you drive there?
A Mercedes.

Do you listen to music in the car?
Sometimes Radio 1, or I just put music on from my iPod.

Do you always travel on your own?

Are you usually one of the first to training – or one of the last?
I'd say I'm somewhere in the middle.

What do you keep in your locker?
Not too much – just some unused boots, some trainers and a few toiletries.

On the training pitches, do you have any special warm up routines?
Nothing in particular, I get straight out there.

What aspect of training do you enjoy the most?
Playing small-sided games is always fun.

Which team-mate do you think is the best trainer?
Thomas Vermaelen always gives 100 per cent, so probably him.

After training what do you take into the shower?
Just a towel – we have shower gel and shampoo provided.

Who do you tend to sit with at lunch?
Whoever's up there really, but Vermaelen often likes to go up there with somebody, and so does Theo, so probably one of them.

Do you always go straight home after training – if not where might you go?
I'd probably go home before heading somewhere else.

What do you tend to do when you get home?
Not that much, but I might go out for a game of golf sometimes or go into London for some food with friends.

What time do you eat dinner?
Around 6.30pm or 7pm.

Tell us three things that you might do in the evening?
Go into London for dinner, as I said, and maybe go to the cinema or the theatre too.

What's the last thing you do before going to bed?
Brush my teeth!

What time do you go to bed?
Between 11pm and 11.30pm.

And in bed, do you tend to read, watch TV, listen to music or go straight to sleep?
I'll watch a bit of television before sleeping.
