An Arsenal fan has been ‘shamed’ on Twitter after spending 47 minutes on FaceTime with his girlfriend during a Champions League match.
The supporter was pictured in the upper tier of the Emirates Stadium – where tickets cost around £70 – as the Gunners drew 2-2 with Paris Saint-Germain last night.
He was seen holding his phone out, with his earphones in, while his partner smiled on the screen.

Fellow Arsenal fan Joshua James snapped the man in action and posted it on Twitter – and the tweet has since gone viral.
He wrote: ‘This is the type of fan that comes to the emirates now..facetiming (sic) his Mrs for 47 minutes’
He later added: ‘We all have to accept that football has changed but more could definitely be done to improve atmosphere it’s not even fun going anymore.’
The post has been retweeted nearly 1,000 times and many people have been less sympathetic to the smitten supporter.
Gabryella Boschetto wrote: ‘Wasting data and wasting money paying for a ticket not watching the game bothering people cause he’s on his phone taking.’
Benjamin Surman posted: ‘Everything wrong with football today!’
Another user said: ‘He’s on another level of whipped.’
Alan Knight saw the cute side to the picture. He wrote: ‘Bless, it must be love, love, love.’
The Gunners knew victory over the Ligue 1 champions last night would have been enough to advance into the last 16 as group winners and theoretically secure an easier tie.
But, after Lucas Moura’s late deflected header sealed a 2-2 draw for PSG, it is the French outfit who now look set to finish top of Group A, with victory at home to Ludogorets in their final fixture enough to keep them clear of Arsenal.
Edinson Cavani gave the visitors the lead before Olivier Giroud’s penalty on the stroke of half-time hauled Wenger’s men level – with Marco Verratti’s own goal then putting Arsenal in front.
But they could not hold their lead and look destined to finish second in their group for a fifth straight season, with Wenger admitting they are unlikely to overhaul PSG, even if they win in Basle next month.
