This is news Arsenal fans will be happy to receive.

Arsenal’s defeat of Tottenham in the FA Cup was tinged with sadness for the Gunners as Theo Walcott saw his season and World Cup hopes get wiped out against Spurs.

Walcott was stretchered off the Emirates pitch flashing his now infamous 2-0 sign in was looked like an innocuous injury, but soon it was confirmed that the forward had a ruptured knee ligament.

Walcott has since been operated on, and on Saturday his was visited by Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs.

Aside from taking a photo, Gibbs wrote a message on his Instagram account saying: Great to see this guy today! Successful Op, now road to recovery
