London: Arsenal star Robin van Persie has slammed claims he made Nazi salutes at Chelsea.

A daily quoted the Arsenal hat-trick hero said: "It is totally ludicrous to suggest that my action of brushing my shoulder could be construed as anything else but a showing of joy and celebration."

The Dutch striker, 28, hit back over crazy internet comments about his second goal celebration in the superb win at Stamford Bridge.

He added: "To suggest this meant anything to the contrary is insulting and absurd as nothing else came into my mind."
