Laura Woods taken aback by bizarre Arsenal fan request

Laura Woods taken aback by bizarre Arsenal fan request

Laura Woods was met with a strange request from an Arsenal fan on Friday night.

Laura Woods adhered to a strange request made at the FA Cup first round game between Sheppey United and Walsall on Friday night.

The Kent outfit, four divisions below their opponents, went 1-0 up at the Tiger Stadium but lost 4-1 after goals from Douglas James-Taylor, Thomas Andrew Knowles, Ross Tierney and Isaac Hutchinson.

The clash was shown live on ITV, with Woods hosting the coverage a day after winning the Sports Presenter of the Year award.

The 36-year-old is a staunch Arsenal supporter but it seems she wasn't the only Gooner at Friday's clash.

Incredibly, a fellow Arsenal fan was in the same proximity as Woods and asked her for an autograph.

But while that request is conventional, the supporter had actually asked her to sign their Arsenal tattoo.

The TNT Sports presenter inked "Laura Woods x" on his leg.

She took to Instagram and added a laughing emoji as well as a picture of her posing with the tattoo.

The caption read: "Never signed an Arsenal tattoo before, but I liked it."

Woods first started as a runner at Sky Sports in 2009 and working her way up into prominent presenting roles in her 13 years there.

She is now one of the most recognisable and popular broadcasters in the business today.

Woods, who also worked for talkSPORT and DAZN, fronts TNT Sports' coverage of the Champions League and hosts FA Cup and women's football matches on ITV.

According to The Sun, Woods' net worth is now around the £2 million mark and only Gabby Logan is ahead of her in terms of female sports presenters in the UK.

The BBC veteran is said to have a net worth of £4 million - the same as Sky Sports presenter David Jones.
