Photos: Must-see training shots of soaked Arsene Wenger sending Gunnersaurus spinning

Gunnersaurus

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and Gunnersaurus had a one on one training session...

What were you doing in the run up to deadline day Arsene?

Forget the shots of the Arsenal boss on a beach in Brazil last summer, Wenger playing football with Gunnersaurus is the 2015 version to inspire a thousand memes.

It was, as it turns out all for a fantastic cause.

Arsenal's manager and mascot Gunnersaurus were among those to take part in the 'Dizzy Goals Challenge', which the club website relayed was in aid of raising awareness and money for Arsenal Foundation’s global charity partner, Save the Children.

Not put off by the rain lashing down heavily at the club's London Colney training ground, 65-year-old Arsene Wenger got stuck in by donning his football boots.

Spare a thought for poor mascot Gunnersaurus who looked to be struggling to stay on his feet. Fortunately for Wenger, if he did take a tumble himself it was not captured by photographers.

Let's hope they both got on far better than one of Arsenal's regular detractors, former footballer and BT pundit Michael Owen.

He posted a video from his back garden earlier this week where his attempt ended in miserable failure as he suffered a John Terry-esque slip at the vital moment.

Perhaps Gunnersaurus could have got a game for England after all...
