The Vietnam leg of Arsenal's Asia Tour 2013 got up and running on Monday with a press conference at the team's hotel in Hanoi.

Arsène Wenger, Ivan Gazidis, Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were in attendance and they answered questions from the hosts as well as local media.

Oxlade-Chamberlain thanked the Vietnamese fans for turning up in their droves in the early hours of the morning when Arsenal's travelling party arrived from Jakarta. "It was unbelievable," he said. "We weren't expecting so many people at that time of the day."

Wenger discussed the growing reputation of Vietnam in football, the significance of Arsenal's first visit to the country and much more.
