Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner celebrated his 26<sup>th birthday on 16 January. The Denmark international received wishes on the special occasion on social networking site Twitter.

The Gunners striker not only saw wishes from Arsenal fans, but rival fans also wished Bendtner on his birthday.

The 26-year-old came on as a substitute during Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Cardiff City at the Emirates, and he opened the scoring before being substituted with an injury.

Bendtner picked up an ankle injury on New Year but has been out of action since then. His injury news came just after Olivier Giroud was ruled out for the matches played this month, before the Frenchman made a return during Arsenal's 2-1 away win over Aston Villa.

Despite him being on the sidelines, Twitter users sent their wishes to Bendtner on his birthday. Take a look at a few of the tweets which were trending with hash tag #LordBendtner.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me ol' mucka Nicky B!!!
