Alexis Sanchez finished the season as an FA Cup winner with Arsenal and a hero in many fans' eyes. That heroic status has been cemented by his latest act of humanity: saving a fan from arrest.

Alexis was voted the PFA Fans' Player of the Year and with 25 goals and 12 assists this season, he has to go down as one of the best signings in recent years.

The Chilean is an iconic figure in his home nation too. He symbolises what can become of even the poorest people in Chile. It was on his arrival in the country that brought fans out in their hundreds to greet him.

One fan was so eager to get close to Alexis that she ran toward the player before being stopped and restrained by police. Alexis came over to save the day and told the policemen to lay off the fan and let her take a picture with him.
