Video: Meeting Thierry Henry Left Houston Rockets Star Clint Capela Absolutely Speechless

What Thierry Henry achieved during his career appears to transcend all sports, after the ex-Arsenal frontman left Houston Rockets center Clint Capela completely speechless this week.

Henry is a self-confessed San Antonio Spurs fan and was in attendance as his favourite NBA team beat the Rockets 110-107 in Game 5 of the Western Conference semi-finals.

The NBA uploaded a video of Henry’s visit to San Antonio, during which he met 22-year-old Swiss player Capela, who admits to being a massive fan of the Sky Sports pundit as they exchange pleasantries on the sideline.

In fact, Capela is so blown away by meeting his idol that he starts to get quite emotional and doesn’t know quite what to say to Arsenal’s record goalscorer:


Game 6 of the semi-finals tips-off at 1am British time tonight and if the Spurs can seal the victory they can set up a matchup with the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.

We fully expect Henry to make another trip across the Atlantic if they make it…
