VIDEO: Lewis Hamilton Joins Arsenal Legends to Face Thierry Henry & Sky Sports at Five-a-Sides

Lewis Hamilton teamed up with some Arsenal legends as he took on Thierry Henry and some of the Sky Sports team in a five-a-side match today.

The reigning Formula 1 champion arrived in London just hours after finishing second in the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday.

And he looked delighted to line up next to Robert Pires, Sol Campbell, Ray Parlour and Soccer AM’s Tubes as they faced Henry, Jamie Redknapp, Jamie Carragher, Paul Merson and Carlo Cudicini.

Hamilton revealed it was ‘surreal’ to play alongside some of his heroes, while Henry and Merson were both complimentary of the Mercedes driver’s football ability.

But the best part of the match for the Englishman must have came when he smashed a penalty beyond former Chelsea goalkeeper Cudicini.

You can see the best bits of the game here:
