Arsenal hero Sol Campbell was delighted for Thierry Henry over his successful comeback earlier this season.

Campbell - who also returned for a second spell at the Club in 2010 - says Henry's remarkable return demonstrated the enduring qualities of the man.

"I spoke to him beforehand and he told me the Club were thinking about bringing him back," Campbell told Arsenal Player at a Show Racism The Red Card event at Emirates Stadium.

"I had lunch with him and told him to go for it. I said, 'As long as people know you are coming back and helping out'. But he did more than help out really.

"He has shown great mental ability to come back and play so well. When he was called upon, he did his best - above and beyond really. It was fantastic."
