Robert Pires’s son, Theo, has been handed the armband of the club’s under-9 side, despite only joining in May.

The eight-year-old put pen to paper at the club where his father is still regarded as a legend in the true sense of the world.

…and he’s wasted no time in confirming the faith of his father and the coaches at Arsenal by being handed the armband:

Captain Theo! Well done U9 ! You did well today
