Arsenal and England star Theo Walcott meets fans in Canary Wharf

England and Arsenal forward Theo Walcott took time out to chat to fans and sign copies of his autobiography in Canary Wharf last Thursday.

The 22-year-old, known for his lightning fast pace on the football field, cut a relaxed figure as he met scores of fans who queued the length of the Jubilee Place shopping mall.

Theo was signing copies of his book, “Theo: Growing Up Fast”, in Waterstone’s.

Despite his tender years, the book can still call on plenty of highlights from Theo’s career, including his surprise call-up to the 2006 England World Cup squad and becoming the youngest player to score a hat-trick for the national team.
