Arsenal to talk to players seen apparently inhaling nitrous oxide

Arsenal players celebrate a goal during their Uefa Europa League Group E match against Vorskla FC at the Olympiyski Stadium in Kiev

Footage of Arsenal players inhaling nitrous oxide, more commonly known as "balloons" or "happy crack", emerged last night.

The video, obtained by The Sun shows the players in a London club days before the start of the season appearing to use nitrous oxide, and while the gas is freely available it is illegal to sell for recreational purposes.

According to the newspaper, the group of Gunners players - which also contained Alexandre Lacazette, 27, midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, 19, and Sead Kolasinac, 25 - were allegedly seen inhaling the drug, with some of them later seen strewn out on sofas.

A number of Gunners stars were in attendance at the "champagne and vodka party" in a VIP area of a West End Nightclub in August prior to the Premier League season getting underway.

The tropically-inspired colour choice also deliberately evokes undersea coral reefs, which are rapidly disappearing due to climate change.

It can make users feel euphoric and relaxed, with some reporting hallucinations, and can lead to loss of blood pressure, fainting and even heart attack.

After seeing the video, an Arsenal spokesperson told BBC Sport that players would be "spoken to and reminded of their responsibilities".

The North London club sit in fifth in the Premier League table, only behind fourth-placed Chelsea on goal difference.

Some of the players reportedly collapsed and passed out after inhaling the gas.
