An Arsenal fan has named his new-born baby girl after Mesut Ozil following a promise he made to the midfielder on Twitter five months ago.
In March the Gunners super fan, Jack Robinson, tweeted Ozil to ask for his help in naming his daughter.
Robinson said he was given permission from his wife to name their child after the German play-maker with one condition – Ozil had to respond to him on Twitter.

Robinson tweeted saying: ‘@MesutOzil1088 wife is expecting in July she said if I can get you to reply, I can name the kid Ozil, don’t let me down.’
Four days later Ozil responded, saying: ‘It’s a deal mate. I don’t let you down. Now it’s your turn. I want to see the birth certificate of your kid in July.’
On Monday August 17 Robinson took to Twitter to announce the arrival of his daughter and the fact he followed through on their deal.
He shared a picture of his baby girl with an Ozil shirt, saying: ‘Deal completed, worth every second.
‘Mara Özil Robinson, nickname and #MÖ. Mom and baby girl doing great.’
‘Thanks again for an amazing lasting memory.’
The German International was quick to respond, saying: ‘Wow, can’t believe you really did it man. Huge congratulations to you and the little family, Jack.’
The German has not played a single minute of professional football since the sport resumed
Manager Mikel Arteta has frozen Ozil out despite initially playing him for their first 10 matches
Despite their love for the Twitter exchange, fans are divided in their opinions of the midfielder.
Ozil started the first 10 Premier League matches of Mikel Arteta’s tenure before falling out of favour after lockdown.
Ozil played no part in Arteta’s side since football returned after the pandemic as part of Project Restart.
With his £350,000-a-week deal at Arsenal due to expire next year, Ozil has been linked with a move away from the Emirates.
As it stands, a likely destination for the 31-year-old is said to be Turkish side Fenerbahce.
