'I can't change my height' – Cazorla joins Arsenal team-mates in hilarious anti-homophobia video

Santi Cazorla took part in Arsenal's video tackling homophobia in football.
Santi Cazorla took part in Arsenal's video tackling homophobia in football.

Arsenal have released a light-hearted video about a very serious issue in an attempt to tackle homophobia in the game.

Teaming up with betting company Paddy Power to support Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign, the short video features the Gunners' players Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud, Mikel Arteta, Santi Cazorla and Alx Oxlade-Chamberlain all describing things that they cannot change about themselves.

In Walcott's case, it is that he is a dead ringer for Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton, Cazorla can't change his (lack of) height, and Oxlade-Chamberlain, well he can't change that he looks just like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
