Arsenal star Theo Walcott made a young fan’s day today in the aftermath of 3-1 win over Sunderland in the FA Cup.
Despite falling behind to a Jeremain Lens strike early into the first-half, the FA Cup holders rallied the troops to record an emphatic victory.
Joel Campbell pegged the visiting Black Cats back not long after, before Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud put the North London giants well ahead.
Walcott usually enjoys a special celebration with team mate Per Mertesacker, during which the pair bump backs while jumping into the air.
However, manager Arsene Wenger saw fit to rest the towering German World Cup winner for today’s game, leaving the England international without a partner to perform the act with.

Not deterred by this, Walcott sensationally plucked a watching young fan out to join him in celebrating the victory.
Hilariously, the youngster is knocked over (gently) in the process! Presumably a 6ft 6 German footballer takes a lot more to fall!
