VIDEO: Arsenal fan falls asleep at Europa League semi-final in Madrid

Travelling supporter utterly conked out in seat.


One Arsenal fan was filmed sound asleep during the Europa League semi-final second leg tie at Atlético Madrid, reflecting the Gunners’ disappointing lack of urgency during the 1-0 defeat.

A goal on the stroke of half-time from old nemesis Diego Costa was enough to end any lingering hopes that Arsène Wenger would get to end his long reign with one last trophy.

And it was all too much – or, indeed, too little – for this travelling supporter, who was caught on camera utterly conked out in his chair before suddenly waking.

Needless to say, those behind the camera sound rather amused by the sighting.
