Brilliant from Theo Walcott… pic.twitter.com/6wMD5NZXoj

Here’s Theo Walcott inviting a young supporter onto the pitch to engage in a rather awkward ‘bump’ celebration of Arsenal’s 3-1 FA Cup victory over Sunderland.
The Gunners star usually performs a celebratory post-match bump with Per Mertesacker, but the German’s absence from the 3rd round tie opened up an opportunity for a special guest spot.
It could be that Walcott failed to adjust his customary bump resistance to compensate for the rather less formidable frame he was up against, because he inadvertently sends the youngster crashing to the turf.
Walcott rounded off his well-meaning gesture by gifting his match shirt to the battered yet delighted fan.
