Arsenal midfielder, Mesut Ozil has sent signed football kit to a young Kenyan fan, saying he was touched to see the boy in a “self-made” jersey with his number 10.

Kenyan sports journalist, Erick Njiru photographed the boy, named only as Lawrence, grazing cattle in Nairobi wearing a red shirt with Ozil’s name and number written by hand on the back.

“He told me he loves Mesut Ozil so much. Maybe one day this can reach Ozil and get a real Arsenal shirt,” the journalist wrote in December last year.

Ozil eventually got to know about the boy and sent gifts, including boots and signed shirts.

Lawrence and his brothers have since been photographed smiling and happy wearing the English football club’s kit.

Ozil has also shared the photographs, telling his Twitter followers it had “touched me so much” adding it was “heartwarming” to see the children’s happiness.

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina on Sunday collapsed during Napoli’s Serie A match against Udinese, and he was taken to hospital afterwards.

The Colombian, on a season-long loan at Napoli, sustained a blow to the head when he collided with Ignacio Pussetto early in the match.

He then fell to the ground shortly before the break after Udinese levelled at 2-2 having been 2-0 down.
The 30-year-old received treatment before he was brought off the field.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti said: “Fortunately it’s nothing serious, he’s conscious. They did a CAT scan that is negative.”

Ospina signed for the Gunners in July 2014 but has only made 27 league appearances for the Premier League side.

He joined Napoli on a season-long loan deal in August 2018.
