Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has put himself in the running to be the Prime Minister of Denmark.

Sort of.

The 27-year-old Wolfsburg striker became something of a cult hero in north London because of his tremendous self-belief coupled with his lack of goalscoring talent.

Today marks election day in Denmark and Bendtner decided to share a poster on his Instagram of the striker mocked up on an election poster with a vote for Lord Bendtner slogan.

The striker is also carrying the Ballon d'Or.

Bendtner started just seven games for Wolfsburg in all competitions last season, scoring five goals.

He has been linked with a move away from the Bundesliga club this summer.
