PICTURE: Podolski dances with danger during time off

Mertesacker Podolski Giroud

Arsenal star Lukas Podolski decided to feed a leopard during some time off from his club duties.

Arsene Wenger probably would have been hoping that his players would have a quiet day with some time off yesterday.

Arsenal played superbly to win the North London derby last weekend but the boss will probably raise one eyebrow when he sees the image of Lukas Podolski dancing with danger and feeding a leopard.

The German showed no fear as the cat hung onto the side of a cage to tear away at the food the Arsenal star was holding.

Whatever happened to a nice relaxing round of golf on a day off?
