Arsenal defender Rob Holding is currently recovering from an ACL injury but that didn’t stop him taking part in a Crossbar Challenge while he was on holiday in the United States.
The Gunners star hit the bar leading to raucous celebrations from both the player and the local youth team he was visiting:

Fans will be delighted to see Holding looking poised to return for the start of next season.
The defender injured his left knee against Manchester United in a clash with Marcus Rashford back in December.
At the time, the diagnosis was approximately nine months out of action, which would put him back in first team contention sometime in September.
Hopefully, Holding is ahead of schedule and will be ready to be named in Unai Emery’s starting eleven for the first match of the campaign against Newcastle on August 11th.
