And Henry was on hand to accept the Best Men’s Player of the Year award on behalf of his ex-Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi.

But it soon turned into the chance to aim a dig Tottenham’s way.

Henry said: “Someone is going to have to take the trophy. I actually have two reasons for taking it. I never won it, so I’ll keep it.”

Henry then turned to Chowdhury and asked: “You are a Tottenham fan right?’ To which his co-host confirmed.

He then cheekily added: “That’s the other reason, as you do not usually get your hands on a trophy, so I’ll take this one.”

Henry’s comment soon went viral with dozens of Gooners hailing the Premier League great.

One said: “Gotta love the King.”

Another added: “Long live the King. Once a Gunner always a Gunner.”
