Arsenal’s absentee midfielder, Jack Wilshere, took to Twitter out of apparent boredom and started the trend #AskWilsh in order to connect with his fans.
I’m bored and have a spare 20 minutes. Let’s do a quick Q&A!! Make sure you use the hashtag #AskWilsh right let’s go……

As expected, the Twittersphere exploded with some of the weirdest and most wonderful reactions to the Englishman’s request. For some time, Twitter trolls have jibed Wilshere over a drugs test taken back in February, accusing the England international of drug abuse. Unsurprisingly, this topic was a particular favourite for some Twitter users. Here is a selection of some of the responses to #AskWilsh.
