Spectator aims kick at Arsenal goalkeeper after EPL game

LONDON (AP) — A spectator climbed onto an advertising board and appeared to kick Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale after the team’s 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Premier League. The incident took place moments after the final whistle at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday as Ramsdale went to pick up his water bottle from behind one of the goals. The spectator leaped over the railing, mounted the hoarding and tried to kick Ramsdale before getting back into the crowd in the South Stand. Ramsdale didn’t seem hurt and was dragged away from the area by teammates before celebrating in front of Arsenal’s supporters at the other end of the stadium.
