Nicklas Bendtner has issued an apology after being arrested on suspicion of criminal damage at his apartment block.

The 25-year-old Arsenal forward was cautioned by police in Hertfordshire on Monday in connection with damage to an apartment building where he lives in the Bushey area.

In a statement, Hertfordshire police said: “A 25-year-old man from Bushey has been cautioned for criminal damage and is no longer in custody. He was arrested in connection with an incident which occurred at an address in The Avenue, Bushey, in the early hours of 24 November.”

Bendtner later issued an apology on his Instagram account: “On Saturday night after our win against Southampton I went out with my family and friends for dinner.

“After our dinner we all wanted a night swim in my gym so we changed to shorts and brought towels down. As we arrived at the gym my key fob changed the colour from red (locked) to green (open) but the door remained closed. We thought the door was stuck so we tried to open it and it caused some damage.

“I apologise for any inconvenience for my neighbours and I have paid in full. We had no part in damaging anything else in the building. The matter is closed with the police and my focus is on [Tuesday night’s] match [against Marseille].”
