An Arsenal mural has gone up in Alexis Sanchez’s home town of Tocopilla.

The city, which is located in the Antofagasta region in the north of Chile, just under 800 miles from Santiago, worships the player with everyone apparently there in possession of a story about time they spent with him.

When Alexis talks of ‘home‘ it is here that he is thinking off, the small two-storey house he shared with his mother Martina and his three brothers, located on Calle Orella.

Not the first mural in the town to feature Alexis, it does seem to be the first to feature Arsenal:
