He heads into that tournament on the back of a first 30-goal campaign at club level, with his exploits helping to keep Arsenal in top-four contention while securing FA Cup glory.

It remains to be seen whether he will be back at Emirates Stadium for 2017-18, but for now he is happy to display that his sporting ability is not limited to the football field.

Alexis has been heavily linked with a big-money transfer this summer as he enters the final 12 months of his contract at Arsenal.

The Gunners are understandably reluctant to part with a prized asset and have taken every opportunity to reiterate that keeping the 28-year-old is considered to be a top priority.
