Per Mertesacker has endeared himself to the Arsenal faithful this season with a number of stellar performances at the back.

The German international's imposing presence on the pitch, aided by his six foot six inch frame, has inspired one of the most prevalent songs to be sung at the Emirates.

Now that song, famous for it's simplicity, has been honoured with a t-shirt, modelled by the man himself.

Posting a picture on his official Twitter account, Mertesacker can be seen modelling the creation, supplied by the label SpielRaum.

The 29-year-old is supporting the production of the t-shirts and insists it is in aid of his personal foundation.

Appearing nine times in the Premier League for Arsenal this term, Mertesacker has been one of the main reasons the Gunners sit at the top of the table.

The German international missed the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United after contracting a virus and is expected to miss Germany's friendly against Italy on Friday.

He is in line to face England at Wembley next week, however, where you are certain to hear some Gunners singing the German's praises once again.

UK residents can order the t-shirt here.
