    Arsenal fans in Hong Kong

    BBC World Service correspondents have been collating supporter reaction from around the world as part of our alternative live text commentary of the FA Cup final.

    Zhijie Shao from BBC Chinese is at an Arsenal gathering in Hong Kong, complete with Karaoke stage: "Asked about the reason they support the team, most of the people here would give you a couple of star names rather than any family history. Some might not even pronounce the names in English - they know them by Cantonese names: Gei-Ngo-Tek for Giroud, O-See-Yee for Ozil."
