Video: Arsenal fans throw a banana at Gareth Bale
- March 3, 2013
It could well be the image that defines today’s north London derby, with Arsenal fans throwing a banana at Gareth Bale as the Welsh flyer looked to take a corner in the first half.
In the build-up to Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Arsenal, there were a large number of comparisons between Spurs’ star man and the fact Gooners believe he looks like a monkey.

Once the banana hit the White Hart Lane turf from the Arsenal end, pictures were spread across social networks of the linesman picking up said piece of fruit.
What do we think of this banter?
Acceptable from the Arsenal fans?
Or, just proof that Tottenham finally have a world class player in their ranks?
