The nightmare news Arsenal fans did not want to hear broke late last night. Mesut Ozil was injured playing for Germany.
It sparked a flurry of activity on social media with fans searching for accurate updates as to the German's condition after he was seen limping off the field late on in the 5-3 win over Sweden.
Fortunately the early diagnosis appears to be positive: German newspaper Bild is reporting Ozil suffered a 'bruised knee' only.
This could keep the playmaker out of Saturday's fixture against Norwich if the Gunners are cautious, but it is unlikely to be a problem beyond that.
What a relief.
That moment the news broke though was a real worry for Gooners, and sparked several viral Twitter mickey takes regarding the concern fans naturally had for their star player.
Here are five of them:
