Arsenal mascot dabs in Belgrade, Theo Walcott thanks riot police on hand

Arsenal ground out a largely pedestrian 1-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday night, with most -- if not quite all -- of the entertainment coming before a ball had even been kicked in anger.

As we panned along the line-ups before kick-off, every single mascot waved back politely, right up until the camera reached the far end, where lay in wait a true rebel.

Sensing his opportunity, the youngster decided to bust out his finest dab in front of an audience of millions.

There's always one.

The Gunners went on to sneak a narrow victory thanks to Olivier Giroud's outlandish 84th-minute overhead kick, the French striker putting the finishing touch to a slick passing move between Theo Walcott and the revitalised Jack Wilshere.

Team well looked after this evening 🙌🏻

Walcott went on to thank his Serbian hosts for their hospitality after the final whistle, specifically the riot police on duty, who he said made sure Arsenal were "well looked after."

With heavy duty gear like that, it's little wonder the Gunners felt safe and secure during their trip to the Rajko Mitic Stadium.
