The Gunners star played a pivotal role in helping his side get their hands on the trophy but struggled to keep it in his grasp

After guiding Arsenal to a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struggled with the resulting silverware as he was filmed dropping the historic trophy.

With no-one on hand to present the cup to Aubameyang due to the coronavirus pandemic, he was left to collect it himself and immediately seemed to find the trophy hard to hold as he took it over to his team-mates to celebrate.

But just as the Gunners were about to enjoy lifting the iconic piece of silverware for a record 14th time, the Arsenal star promptly dropped it, much to the humour of those watching on.

Thankfully, the cup seemed to avoid any serious damage as Aubameyang eventually lofted the title over his head in celebration.
