Ever since Andrei Arshavin joined Arsenal in January, certain questions have plagued football fans: which brand of butter does the Russian prefer? Does his wife own any bright pink velour tracksuits? How do his boots looked when photographed next to a pear?

Thankfully, our prayers have been answered with the release of these pictures, which show the Arsenal midfielder at home with partner-who-he-calls-his-wife-even-though-they’re-not-married Julia and son Artyom.
