British athletics star and passionate Gooner Mo Farah will be showing off even more fancy footwork than usual at the London Grand Prix at Crystal Palace this weekend after having special Arsenal themed spikes made up for the event.

The double European champion actually dreamt of being a football star with Arsenal as a kid and his athletics coach even used to bribe him with the promise of a kick-about session if he did all of his athletics training.

Now Nike have rewarded him with the special 'Arsenal-inspired Zoom Victory Spikes' after he agreed to meet 75 young runners to pass on advice earlier this week.

The spikes tie in with Arsenal's 125 celebrations, featuring the anniversary crest on the insoles.

Check out close-ups of the spikes below.
