Arsenal's star man Alexis Sanchez has proved he is not just a hero on the pitch, he is one off it too.

Here is the forward coming to the aid of an emotional fan as he arrived back in Chile this week (watch below).

The supporter was held by police officers as she tried to cross the road to get near to the striker. Noticing this, Sanchez calmly turned back, spoke to the police and gave the fan what she wanted - a nice picture.

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


Sanchez enjoyed a wonderful first season at Arsenal after joining from Barcelona for £35m in 2013, scoring 25 goals in all competitions for the Gunners, including a glorious strike in Saturday's 4-0 FA Cup final victory over Aston Villa.


After the win, Theo Walcott, who scored the first goal in the final, hailed to Gunners' squad:

“I’ve been here a long time and this is one of the best squads we’ve had.

“The Premier League is our next big target. I have to thank the manager for picking me and I hope I repaid him. I missed all this last year. I was injured and at home. To be part of it all at last is a dream.”
