Superfan gran, 81, gets tattoo of favourite sports team

She's ready for the big game!

An 81-year-old gran has gone above and beyond to show her devotion to her favourite sports team.


Arsenal superfan, Mary Hannan, has had a tribute to the English Premier League side inked on arm.


The tattoo includes her team’s name and emblem, as well as small red heart to show her love for the Gunners.

Mary, from Gosford, NSW, decided to have the design done ahead of Arsenal’s visit to Sydney this week.

The team, who Mary grew up watching as a girl in the UK, are visiting Australia for the first time in 40 years, so she was determined to do something special.
