Arsenal star Mesut Ozil caused a lot of reaction on Twitter when he made a stunning gesture towards a young Arsenal fan in a wheelchair – posting a video of the moment he and the young boy met each other.
The young fan got to meet some of his Arsenal heroes after the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Saturday. The former German international bowed down to the boy, greeting him with a handshake, much to the delight and amusement of the youngster.
Ozil spent a few seconds talking the boy, with his family standing by and taking pictures. The gripping moment came when he clung onto Ozil’s hand with both of his; clearly a dream come true for him, after he watched his beloved Arsenal claim their third consecutive victory of the season.
Ozil got on the scoresheet for Arsenal on Saturday, scoring the club’s second goal of the afternoon after an Alexandre Lacazette shot was blocked and landed at the feet of the attacking midfielder, who calmly put the ball in the back of the Newcastle net.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions by Arsenal fans:
