A strike from Aaron Ramsey and an own goal from Kalidou Koulibaly proved to be the difference as Arsenal take a crucial lead going into the Europa League quarter-final second leg next week.

Ozil starred against the Serie A side as he pulled the strings in the final third of the pitch, showing why he has become a key player under Unai Emery of late.

And after the match he was involved in a heartwarming meeting with a young supporter, who looked delighted as he touched the World Cup winner's face.

The former Real Madrid ace uploaded the clip to Twitter, captioning the post: "Happy to have had the chance to meet my special fan Mikey yesterday.

"He lost his eyesight due to a rare eye disease but this certainly does not stop him from playing football.

"I know you'll continue to follow your dreams, young man."

In what was a memorable night for Mikey, he and his family watched the match from Ozil's own box, while he was also gifted a signed shirt as well as meeting the rest of Arsenal squad.

Ozil - who has chipped in with five goals and three assists in 28 games this season - has been praised online, as one user tweeted: "You're an amazing man Mesut. A hero!"

While another commented: "What a guy. Beyond football you will always be remembered as an inspiration."

One said: "What a lovely gesture. Human kindness at its best. Pure class."

Another simply stated: "Top guy Ozil an example to the rest."
