Journalist started singing to Martin Odegaard after Arsenal beat Bodo Glimt, he didn't know how to react
| Last updated
Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard received a surprise sing-song from a journalist after the Gunners beat Bodo Glimt 1-0 away from home.
Though one of his shots nearly hit a man in his flat behind the goal, hot-shot Bukayo Saka scored the winner against the Norwegian outfit to make it three wins from three in the Europa League.
Odegaard, returning to his native Norway, played 70 minutes on the artificial pitch at the Aspmyra Stadion before being replaced by Marquinhos.
After the game, the former Real Madrid midfielder was in the mixed zone giving interviews. But one reporter did a bit more than ask a question.
Despite Odegaard saying, "I don't think I have time for that right now", he proceeded to erupt into song while Odegaard sipped on a blue isotonic drink.
Although he looked incredibly confused, football.london say Odegaard said, "Thank you, that was beautiful, great work," after the tune was belted out.
Yet fans couldn't help but acknowledge that Odegaard must have felt so awkward and had no idea what was going on.
One wrote: "The awkward sip of drink" accompanied with laughing emojis, while another put: "the man didn't know what to do."
Others observed how awkward the exchange with the journalist was, while another said they would have 'started laughing in that man's face'.

Reporter: «i have made a song for you as a gift»
Odegaard: «i dont think i have time for that right now»
Reporter: sings the song anyway
Martin: «thank you, that was beautiful, great work»
It's not quite on the same level as the William Saliba chant Arsenal fans have been singing everywhere they go and you've got to commend Odegaard for not just walking off.
Premier League leaders Arsenal now turn their attentions to Sunday when they travel to play Leeds United at Elland Road.
They then host PSV at the Emirates in a rearranged Europa League clash on Thursday 20 October, when they will be hoping to secure qualification to the knockout stages with a win.
