Theo Walcott made Saturday a very special day for one Arsenal supporter.

The England international went over to some of the home fans following Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over Sunderland in the third round of the FA Cup.

Walcott didn’t get on the score sheet in the cup win but the 26-year-old was in a pretty good mood in the minutes after the game.

The Arsenal striker called over one home fan and invited the lucky Gooner to take part in famous celebration routine with Per Mertesacker.

To cap a perfect afternoon for the defending FA Cup holders, Walcott gifted the Arsenal supporters his match-worn shirt.

Walcott posted the above video and wrote on his Instagram page: “Happy with 3-1 win & thanks for the help with celebration 😉 #COYG”
