Arsenal legend Tony Adams has revealed he’ll be on the next series of Strictly Come Dancing.
Adams, who represented the Gunners for 19 years, revealed he’d be competing in the popular BBC series to fans on Wednesday.
He said on Twitter: “So… I’m officially swapping my battered old football boots for the ballroom shoes! The lure of the sequins was simply too much!
“I am thrilled to be a part of the 20th anniversary of @bbcstrictly
this year.. I can’t wait to meet my partner and get dancing #Strictly.”
The news has sparked a frenzy on social media with a number of fans remembering that famous clip of Adams doing an enthusiastic warm-up drill while he was manager of Spanish club Granada.
In the clip, Adams can be seen gesticulating at his players, while running forwards and backwards and then moving side-to-side.
However, Arsenal have gone for the more conventional show of support in a message that suggested that Adams could perhaps be a dark horse in the competition.
“Good feet for a big man [wink face],” Arsenal tweeted.

A start date for this series of Strictly has not been confirmed, however, the BBC has confirmed that the opening show will be filmed on September 7, meaning the series premiere is likely to take place on Saturday September 10.
