The funniest and best football-related tweets from the week gone by, featuring Robin van Persie, Anthony Martial’s botched apology, a terrifying mascot and the perfect volley.
Well done you, you’ve gotten over ‘hump day’ and are now one day closer to the weekend. Frankly, if you use that phrase unironically I can’t respect you, and I certainly can’t feel sorry for you if a midweek of Champions League football can’t get you out of your slump.
But look, I don’t want any enmity between us, so I’ve compiled a few tweets that you probably missed while you were fretting over spreadsheets and projects or whatever other nonsense your 9-5 life demands of you. Enjoy.
Robin van Persie, restoring your faith in humanity one high five at a time.

The most terrifying mascot since Kingsley came to Partick Thistle.
