Thierry Henry thought statue erected in his honour was 'a joke'

An emotional Thierry Henry reveals he initially thought the unveiling of a statue of him outside Emirates Stadium was "a joke", and says he has been left "speechless" by the honour.

The Gunners' record goal-scorer also states his "admiration" for current captain Robin van Persie, who he says "wasn't the easiest guy to deal with" when he first joined Arsenal, but says "it's amazing to see" how the Dutch striker has improved his game.
