Danny Welbeck grabbed all the headlines on Sunday as Arsenal took on Leicester in a top of the table clash. 

His 94th minute goal lifted the roof off the Emirates stadium as his side claimed a crucial three points having gone behind to a penalty from Jamie Vardy in the first half. 

Like most other fans, Scott Woods celebrated wildly after the goal went in, but unlike most fans it ended up putting him in hospital. 

After suffering from a pain in his stomach after the game and feeling unwell the following day, Woods decided to go to the hospital as a precaution, where it was revealed that he had a hernia.

Speaking to the Metro, he said that "I was jumping around with my dad and hugging my dad. Felt under the weather on Monday and then had to go to hospital in the middle of the night last night". Once there, he was prepped for surgery to treat the problem.

Woods also said that he was "not sure the hernia was worth the 15 minutes of fame. If Arsenal win the league it will be!".
