March 21 marks World Down Syndrome Day and to mark the occasion, we're telling the story of when Granit Xhaka invited a young fan with Down syndrome to spend the weekend at Arsenal.
Julian, who Granit met during his time at Borussia Monchengladbach, toured the training ground before our match against Southampton at the end of February, before watching our 2-0 win at Emirates Stadium the following day.
Our club photographer took plenty of pictures during Julian's trip - and you can enjoy them all below.
