Danny Welbeck made a lot of Arsenal fans jump for joy with his injury-time winner against Leicester on Sunday, but one fan’s celebrations ended up being a little too exuberant.
Welbeck’s goal brought the Gunners right back into the title race, but it also landed fan Scott Stephen Wood in hospital.
He posted a picture online from his hospital bed and captioned it: “Thanks to @dannywelbeck and the @arsenal. Celebrated so wildly after his goal that I’ve done my hernia and need surgery”.
“I was jumping around with my dad and hugging my dad,” he explained to the metro newspaper.
“Felt under the weather on Monday and then had to go to hospital in the middle of the night last night.”
He said he would have to rein in his celebrations for a while. but it hasn’t dampened his love for his team.
“After this I think I’m going to be taking it a bit easier for a while.
“Not sure the hernia was worth the 15 minutes of fame. If Arsenal win the league it will be!”
