Did you spot it? This story was an April Fool. Hope you enjoyed it.

Arsenal and kit manufacturers Puma have unveiled a world first this morning: a special left-footed football known as the Left-Footed evoPOWER Football.

The ball has been exclusively designed for Arsenal, and will "increase the accuracy, power and precision of a left-footed player", according to Puma.

Santi Cazorla, Mesut Özil, Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin, were the first players to test the new football.

"It’s unbelievable!" said the two-footed Cazorla.

Right-footed player, Hector Bellerin added "It’s a bit tricky to use on your right-foot but it instantly improved my left-foot."


Speaking about the launch, Keith Woods, PUMA’s Senior Product Line Manager for Teamsport Accessories, said: “This football will not only improve the overall game of left and two footed players, it is also the perfect training aid for the right-footed player’s weaker left-foot.
