Jack Wilshere may rub shoulders with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil on a daily basis but he was left starstruck on Thursday evening when he met Brazil legend Pele.
Even better for Wilshere, the Arsenal midfielder was given the opportunity to interview the three-time World Cup winner during the launch party of 10Ten Talent.
Both Wilshere and Pele, along with Glenn Hoddle, are clients and the England international made sure his fans on Twitter knew about their meeting by posting several tweets.

Earlier on Thursday, Wilshere tweeted: ‘Looking forward to meeting @Pele tonight. I’ll be asking the best questions you sent. #JackMeetsPele.’
The 23-year-old then followed this up with several tweets about the event, many of which included photos of Pele.
Meanwhile, Pele has acknowledged that last year’s World Cup was a ‘disaster’ for Brazil but is not surprised how quickly the likes of Oscar and Ramires have bounced back in the Barclays Premier League this season.
