Thierry Henry has received high praise from former manager Arsene Wenger for the way he has managed to continue playing until 36.
"People like Thierry Henry [also] had exceptional qualities,” he told Arsenal Player.
"They would run 100 metres in 11 seconds when everybody else did it in 12.5 or 13. So if today they are running it in 12, they are still quicker.
"They start from a huge potential and that's why at that age they can still survive, because they have the football intelligence. They had exceptional physical qualities at the start.”
