Comedian and Arsenal fan Romesh Ranganathan took the chance to say what so many Gooners must have been itching to tell Robin van Persie for years.

Ranganathan simply tells the Dutchman: “You’re a prick mate” before joking he’ll end up leaving the show half way through to go and do A Question of Sport instead.
Van Persie recently retired from football, having had spells at Fenerbahce and Feyenoord since leaving Man Utd in 2015.
