Thierry Henry's return to Arsenal turned sour on Sunday when he was involved in a heated exchange with a fan following his side's stunning 3-2 defeat to Swansea.

Henry, who has rejoined the club on a six-week loan from New York Red Bulls, came on as a substitute as the Gunners slipped to their sixth away defeat of the season and, after the game, took his team-mates over to acknowledge the thousands of travelling fans.

However, he took exception to something that was said from the stands and was seen to engage in an angry exchange with at least one fan.

A club spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Mail that Henry had said: "No matter what, you should support the team."

The Sun claim that the fan had shouted at Henry and his team-mates: "Where is the heart and the character and the fight?"
