Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were the victims of an attempted armed carjacking in London earlier this morning.

Footage has revealed that Bosnian defender, Kolasinac was able to fight off the carjackers as they fled away on their mopeds.

Ozil, wife Amine Gulse and Kolasinac were driving through London when they were chased by the attackers forcing Ozil and his wife to abandon the car and look for help at a nearby Turkish restaurant.

Eyewitness reports say that the attackers attempted to chase the pair into the restaurant before staff intervened.

The footage highlights the bravery of Kolasinac in fighting off the knife-wielding attackers with little regard for his own well-being.

Social media has rightly labelled Kolasinac a hero in his successful attempt in running off the carjackers.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "It was reported that suspects on motorbikes had attempted to rob a man who was driving a car."

"The driver, along with his passenger, managed to get away unharmed and travelled to a restaurant in Golders Green, where they were spoken to by officers."

Ozil, Kolasinac and Gulse are all believed to be doing well after the incident.
