Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has met with the fan who he rescued from the police in Chile last week.

Last week, the supporter was held by police officers as she tried to cross the road to get near to the striker. When he noticed this, Sanchez calmly turned back, spoke to the police and gave the fan what she wanted - a nice picture (watch video below). And the lucky fan has some new pictures now as well.

The 26-year-old is over in Chile ahead of the Copa America, which starts on 11 June in his native country.


Sanchez posted some pictures of him with the fan on his Twitter account today, and also revealed that he gave her some gifts.



He may have scored 25 goals, but Sanchez has described his first season at Arsenal as “bittersweet” after the North London team failed to mount a serious title challenge or Champions League campaign.


At a press conference ahead of Chile’s first Copa America match on Friday, Sanchez conceded “I would have liked to be in the Champions League final or to have won the Premier League title. I believe we have a bunch of skillful players so to not achieve more is disappointing.”
