Alex Iwobi Told Rennes' Hamari Traore His Breath Stinks In Europa League Win
Arsenal's Alex Iwobi taunted Rennes' Hamari Traore big-time towards the end of the Gunners' Europa League round of 16 win last night.
Having trailed 3-1 from the first leg in France, Unai Emery's side turned the tie around completely on their own patch.
A brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang either side of a strike from Ainsley Maitland-Niles booked Arsenal's place in Friday's quarter final draw.
But there was a huge talking point in the dying embers of the game when Iwobi appeared to kick at Traore after being fouled.
The two squared up but instead of butting heads, Iwobi held his hand to his nose to suggest the right-back needed a fresh pack of chewies of tic tacs before walking away with the assistance of Sead Kolasinac.
As expected, the Nigerian's antics drew a whole lot of reaction on social media:
Still, as funny as it was from Iwobi, it's still the second best reaction to an altercation in football this week.
A few days back, Sonny Bradley achieved viral recognition for what he did when shoved by Bradford midfielder Lewis O'Brien.
Instead of dropping to the deck as is common in the modern game, he hilariously and theatrically staggered backwards and it was quite brilliant to watch.

You'll also see that James Austin (No.2 for Luton), also joined the former Hull City defender in the mocking of O'Brien's strength. We're really big fans of the pettiness shown.
