Arsenal's trip to the One Pillar Pagoda in central Hanoi on Monday was made even more enjoyable by a fan who would stop at nothing to meet his heroes.
The 'Running Man', as he became known, chased the team bus for some five kilometres, maintaining his pursuit despite bumping into trees and a lamp post.
He eventually clambered aboard a motorbike, reached the coach door and boarded the vehicle to a standing ovation from the enthralled Arsenal players.
