“I apologise to my wife, family and friends and my manager, team-mates and Arsenal fans.” - Olivier Giroud
The French international, initially, denied such allegations and rumours, but Kay exposed a photo that shows Giroud with only his underwear on.
"Olivier knows the truth and the fact that he lied about us is pathetic," Kay told The Sun.

For his part, the former Montpellier man put an end to the buzz by implicitly admitting his guilt over social media. "I apologise to my wife, family and friends and my manager, team-mates and Arsenal fans," Giroud tweeted. "I now have to fight for my family and for my club and obtain their forgiveness. Nothing else matters at the moment."
