Arsenal star hailed as a hero after car attack

Yasmin Tahsiner, the owner of Lykah restaurant in Golders Green where Arsenal players Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac sought refuge after being attacked by carjackers, has hailed the Gunners defender as a hero.

Kolasinac fought off two men wielding knives after he and team-mate Mesut Ozil were attacked in north London on Thursday.

In a video of the incident that has been circulated on social media, Kolasinac can be seen jumping out of a vehicle to confront the masked aggressors, who had pulled alongside the car on mopeds.
