PHOTO: Another smoking Gun? Arsenal star posts Instagram shot

Nicklas Bendtner, dubbed Lord by a bulk of his following, has posted a seemingly innocuous photograph, yet eagle eyes have spotted something…

Many months ago, Jack Wilshere courted much controversy for being spotted smoking what appeared to be a cigarette.

England manager Roy Hodgson, who included the Arsenal star in his FIFA World Cup squad announced earlier today, claimed the 'scandal' was Arsenal's responsibility - and the player swiftly apologised for his mistake.

That was October, 2013.

The above photograph, uploaded by Nicklas Bendtner's official Instagram page, shows an innocent threesome sharing a joke, however, on closer inspection, it appears there is a second smoking Gun in Arsene Wenger's ranks as Bendtner is pictured with a cigar in his right hand!

Bendtner may be void of the same scrutiny, however, as he is not a: English; b: a first-teamer or c: smoking a cigarette. Cigar smoke tends to not be fully inhaled.

The caption to the picture read: "[I] love this picture!" It is also hashtagged "old pic".
