Kelly Sotherton didn't take the Gunners' 2-0 defeat to Barcelona

It looks like former Olympian and diehard Arsenal fan Kelly Sotherton didn't take the Gunners' 2-0 defeat to Barcelona all that well on Tuesday.

Arsene Wenger's side held out bravely for over an hour against the reigning European champions, before being caught on the counter and conceding a sloppy penalty to give Lionel Messi two goals in 13 second-half minutes.

And it appears the late capitulation was too much for Sotherton, who tweeted that she had smashed her television in response to the football. Her tweet was accompanied by another from a friend, showing a remote control firmly wedged in the middle of the screen.
