​Henry jersey worn on Arsenal 100th goal raises £16k for charity

A shirt worn by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has raised over £16,100 for the NHS Charities Together organisation.

The Frenchman, who scored 228 goals for the Gunners, reached 100 Arsenal goals against Birmingham City.

Robbie Savage played for Birmingham at the time, and swapped shirts with Henry after the game.

On Twitter, the former Welsh international said: "An incredible £16,100 raised for NHS charities from the auction of my Thierry Henry 100th goal in an Arsenal shirt!

"Thank you so much to the buyer, what an unbelievable amount of money to the NHS.

"Thank you Daily Mirror for setting it up."

Savage admitted that he got permission from Henry to go ahead with the sale so he could raise the money for the NHS.
