Arsenal fans in hysterics as they spot Thierry Henry’s reaction to Chelsea loss
Arsenal fans have been left in hysterics after spotting Thierry Henry's reaction to Chelsea being beaten by Real Madrid.
Television cameras spotted the Gunners' all-time leading goalscorer in the crowd at Stamford Bridge during the second half, with Henry shown laughing and joking with a friend whilst Chelsea trailed 3-1.
A hat-trick from his fellow Frenchman Karim Benzema consigned the reigning European champions to a comfortable first leg defeat in this year's quarter-finals, ahead of the return fixture next Tuesday.
Former Chelsea manager and current Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte was also in the stands, sat one row in front of Henry.
Arsenal fans were quick to react to the footage of Henry laughing and took to social media to mock their London rivals' defeat to the Spanish giants.
One Gunners fan tweeted: “Thierry Henry is certainly enjoying the Chelsea game.”
Another added: “Henry got front row seats to this Chelsea disaster class," whilst a third supporter wrote: “Chelsea getting slapped with Henry in attendance.”

Meanwhile, another fan tweeted: “Henry and Conte watching Madrid bury Chelsea together in the stadium is quite a funny sight to see.”
Chelsea had beaten Real Madrid in last season's semi-finals but were brushed aside comfortably by the same opponents on Wednesday night.
Benzema's treble was his second consecutive Champions League hat-trick after he also scored three during the second leg of Los Blancos' second leg victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the last round.
The 34-year-old also became the first player to score a hat-trick against Chelsea in a European match with his goals on Wednesday, thanks to two headers and a simple tap-in after a mistake from Edouard Mendy.
Kai Havertz had pulled one back for Chelsea before the interval, only for Benzema to restore the visitors' two-goal lead inside the first minute of the second half.
Thomas Tuchel's side travel to the Santiago Bernabeu next Wednesday, hoping to overturn their first leg deficit, with the winners of the tie set to face either Manchester City or Atletico Madrid in the last four.
