"Yes, that story is true,” Alexis told Arsenal Player. “I was driving up in the mountains not far from Barcelona with my mother and friends when a white rabbit got in our way and stopped in front of us.


“Apparently rabbits get blocked when a strong light points at them. I suggested that we catch him and that’s what we did.

“I ended up having three pets as opposed to two. I took care of him and fed him.

“I remember [once] being on my way to training and having to turn back and return home because I had forgotten to feed my pets!"
