Zenit winger wears headdress like Buranovskiye Babushki.
Ex-Arsenal playmaker Andrey Arshavin was an unused substitute for Zenit Saint Petersburg during a 4-2 home loss to Dinamo Moscow on Sunday.
The defeat dealt a blow to Zenit’s hopes of winning the league title.
Arshavin looked fragile as he watched on from the bench – perhaps he had been up too late watching Saturday night’s Eurovision Song Contest?
With a towel wrapped around his head, the 32-year-old looked very much like one of the old ladies from Russia’s 2012 Eurovision entry, Buranovskiye Babushki.
Arshavin scored 23 goals in 105 Premier League appearances for the Gunners between 2009 and 2013.

Buranovskiye Babushki finished second in 2012’s Eurovision final. Remind yourselves why below.
