Ahead of our return to the Far East this summer, we have created a special video depicting Thomas Vermaelen as a Chinese Warrior in commemoration of one of the most memorable images of last year's tour.

In July 2011, we saw some incredible banners created by supporters and hung up at the Hangzhou Stadium, including one of Vermaelen as a Shaolin Kung-Fu Master.

We were so impressed that we decided to recreate it as a video, and you can read the full explanation here. You can also see a picture gallery of the shoot here.
