He’s one of the top strikers in the Premier League, famed for his aerial threat at both club and international level, but how would Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud fare in a fight against Conor McGregor?

Not well, he says.

Giroud took part in a Q&A session at the Arsenal training ground with teammate Laurent Koscielny and one of the questions put to him was about how long he’d last in a cage with UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.

“Maybe ten seconds”, Giroud says with a laugh. “I have never been in a cage fighting UFC. It would be nice to try. So, McGregor, when you want?”

Giroud then exhales sharply: “OK, I’m dead”, he says.
