And from time to time, the topic of racing other sporting speedsters comes up. Sometimes it’s Theo Walcott, sometimes it’s Usain Bolt - but it’s always tongue in cheek.

Arsene Wenger was asked about Bellerin v Bolt at his press conference on Friday.

“Well, that is a bit ambitious [for Hector]!” the boss responded with a smile.

"Usain Bolt loves football but I think he’s still too quick for Hector!”
