See Arsenal in Vietnam as part of the club’s pre-season Asian Tour 2013, plus watch and hear the players laugh as a fan trips while running alongside their tour bus.

Arsenal have a large following in the south-east Asian country and were mobbed by numerous fans, both on foot and riding on mopeds, while travelling by coach through Hanoi – the capital city.

See the fanatic following below:

Star Gunners striker Olivier Giroud is clearly enjoying the trip and has posted continual updates to his Facebook page.

Take a look at the video Giroud uploaded, showing the players on the team coach filming crazed supporters running alongside the bus, trying to keep up with the team.

At first the players seem eager for there not to be an accident, muttering that the supporter they were filming should “watch the tree” and “watch the post”.

Someone even proclaims that the fan is:

fitter than Aaron Ramsey

But eventually one young Arsenal enthusiast trips and falls much to the amusement of those on the coach, if the howls of laughter are anything to go by.

Watch the Arsenal fan trips in Vietnam or tripgate incident below:

Olivier Giroud says:

This man followed us during 15 minutes!…

Just to show that the north London club is not completely heartless, they invited the fallen fan on the coach for a meet and greet / autograph signing session:

Olivier Giroud says:

And finally we take him into the coach!…for signing his Arsenal shirt!…
