Arsenal superfan Sir Mo Farah got to live the dream when he trained with the Gunners squad on Thursday.

The new knight, honoured in the New Year's list, got involved in some light work at Arsenal's London Colney training ground before posing for pictures with his heroes.

Farah, a four-time Olympic gold medallist after his 5,000m and 10,000m doubles at London and Rio, even donned a personalised club tracksuit and was all smiles as he battled with Danny Welbeck in a battle for possession.

However, he will have been keen to take care following the striker's long-awaited comeback from injury.

The 33-year-old's love of the Gunners is well known as he once tried to call his son Arsenal while he has featured in charity games in the past.
