This is the terrifying moment moped muggers threatened Arsenal stars Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac with a knife then chased them for a mile in a terrifying carjacking while they were on a day out.

The pair were ambushed by the robbers at around 5pm yesterday as £350,000-a-week midfielder Ozil drove his black Mercedes G-Class through leafy Childs Hill in north London.

As the thugs surrounded the 4x4, Sead 'The Tank' Kolasinac, leapt out and bravely swung punches at the attackers despite being threatened with a knife, before he got back into the car and Ozil sped off.

The players were then chased through the mansion-lined streets of north London in a high-speed pursuit that lasted for more than a mile. As Ozil was driving, the attackers pelted his car with roof tiles to try and break the rear window.

Ozil overtook traffic on the wrong side of the road as 'ninja style' robbers followed them. During the pursuit, Kolasinac phoned a nearby Turkish restaurant on Golders Green where they were regulars, before they stopped there and jumped out.

Staff rushed out to defend the Arsenal players from the thugs, who drove off on their mopeds. Ozil's wife, Amine Gulse, was reportedly in the car at the time.

Despite their terrifying ordeal, the pair were all smiles this morning in a photo posted on Twitter by Kolasinac, which was captioned, 'Think we're all fine'.
