A second man has pleaded guilty to attempting to rob watches from Arsenal footballers Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac.

30-year-old Ashley Smith of Archway, north London, has also previously admitted his role in the attempted robbery of Ozil, 31, and Kolasinac, 26.

Footage that circulated on social media of the incident showed defender Kolasinac chasing off two people on mopeds wearing dark clothing and helmets.


Ozil then reportedly left his gold-trimmed vehicle in the middle of the road and ran into a nearby restaurant.

Both players were unhurt in the incident.
