Football news - Arsenal to speak to players involved in 'hippy crack' controversy
Arsenal say that first-team stars filmed inhaling ‘hippy crack’ will be “reminded of their responsibilities”.
The Sun has published a video, originally filmed in August, which apparently shows Alexandre Lacazette, Matteo Guendouzi, Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang engaged in what the paper describes as a “dangerous binge on nitrous oxide”.
The incident occurred in a London nightclub before the start of the season.
The Arsenal players are seen to be inhaling the gas from balloons. It is not illegal to possess nitrous oxide but it is illegal to supply it under the 2016 Psychoactive Substances Act.
A spokesman said: "The players will be spoken to about this and reminded of their responsibilities as representatives of the club."
