The German center-back has featured as a regular in almost every match for Arsenal this season with his intimidating physique. Often being labeled as the Gunners’ ‘Big Friendly Giant,’ Mertesacker might be a strong defensive presence on the pitch, but off it, he’s just as friendly as his title perceives.

In efforts to promote World Book Day, Mertesacker made his way to a local library and posing with a priceless expression with a book titled ‘The BFG’, otherwise known as Roald Dahl’s ‘The Big Friendly Giant’.

His expression show that no matter how intimidating he looks on the pitch, this picture tells a completely different tale.
