Arsenal warn star players over use of 'laughing gas'

Arsenal warn star players over use of 'laughing gas'

The footage was then published by The Sun.

Arsenal football club has said it will speak to several star players after footage emerged apparently showing them taking nitrous oxide - also known as "hippy crack" - at a lavish party in London earlier this year.

It is believed that the likes of Aubameyang, Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolasinac and Matteo Guendouzi began inhaling balloons containing nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, which is also commonly referred to as "hippy crack".

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Shkodran Mustafi have also been identified in the video, but neither were seen inhaling the gas, with Mkhitaryan actively refusing to be given a balloon.

The incident took place in August, just before the start of the season, when a number of the London club's squad members enjoyed a night out at Tape Club.

The club has now responded to the shocking footage, with a spokesperson telling the BBC that the players would be "spoken to and reminded of their responsibilities".

Nitrous oxide, which is used legitimately in medicine, dentistry and catering, is legal, although it is illegal to supply or import it for personal use.

The Arsenal marksman is in scintillating form this season, leading the Premier League scoring charts with 10 goals.

Nonetheless, Unai Emery and his men extended their unbeaten streak to 20 matches in all competitions this season.
