The Asia Tour 2013 is officially underway after the Arsenal squad touched down in Jakarta on Friday afternoon.

A crowd of excited Indonesian supporters greeted Arsène Wenger and his players as they stepped off the plane and there was an equally warm welcome from the assembled local media inside the terminal.

Wenger, Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere fielded questions in separate interviews before they were joined by chief executive Ivan Gazidis in a packed press conference.

Our club photographers are both on tour and they sent back these pictures from the first hours of the trip.
