Arsenal hero Thierry Henry's powers know no bounds...

Thierry Henry saw the red mist every now and again in England, but by and large the strike sensation was known for his laid back approach.

His casual demeanour was often mistaken for arrogance, perhaps a bit of both - but he would not be Thierry Henry or the great player he was without it.

Now 36, he is still playing in Major League Soccer, rattling in the goals for the New York Red Bulls.

A week ago he scored a two-yard tap in winner against Toronto, and almost could not be bothered to celebrate. Instead he leaned against a post and looked at the floor, striking a pose which would inspire a dozen photoshops.

First of all check out the goal and celebration itself below:

Henry's post has inspired a series of internet mickey-takes with talented photo-shop artists planting his image onto famous or contemporary images or using them to create scenes.

They can be seen collated on the @henrying_ Twitter account, and we have embedded many of the best below:

What do you think of them? Where does Henry rank in terms of the greatest players you have seen?
