Mikel Arteta has 'done a John Terry' by changing into full kit to celebrate Arsenal's FA Cup triumph over Aston Villa.

Terry was famously ridiculed for doing the same thing after Chelsea won the Champions League trophy in 2012.

But it turns out Terry isn't the only footballer desperate to not look out of place in post-match celebrations.


Arteta had been in with a chance of featuring in the match having been ruled out since November with injury. However when the team sheets came through it showed that the Spaniard hadn't even made the bench.

But he'd obviously brought his kit anyway as after the full-time whistle went he swiftly changed out of his suit and into his yellow strip - complete with shorts - to join in the celebrations.
