That's how Mikel Arteta's hair is immovable

Theo Walcott "can't help looking like Lewis Hamilton", Mikel Arteta "can't change that my hair is perfecto", Santi Cazorla mocks his height and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain makes reference to his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle likeness.

Best of all, though, is the smouldering Olivier Giroud. Topless, he is sprayed with fake tan before remarking: "I can't change that I'm gorgeous," accompanying his arousing French accent with a wink.

Stonewall are sending rainbow laces to Premier League players to wear during next weekend's round of matches. The caveat is Arsenal are sponsored by the same betting firm backing the charity's initiative, hence why they are promoting the campaign.

Everton and Joey Barton did similarly last year, due to their own partnerships with the attention-seeking bookmaker.
