Arsenal Football Club celebrated its 125th birthday in style on Saturday.

From the bands around Emirates Stadium to the cannons on the pitchside, it was an occasion in which everyone could revel.

Our cameras caught the flavour of the day - the fans milling around the newly-erected statues, the players arriving for their special game, the club legends appearing on the pitch before kick-off and much more.

This will be the first of a number Arsenal 125 videos appearing this week. We hope you enjoy them.
