Anthony Joshua hangs out with ex-Arsenal star Thierry Henry after Sports Personality of the Year nomination

While Anthony Joshua is hopeful of becoming the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year for the first time, the heavyweight champion spent some time with a multi-award winner in former Arsenal star Thierry Henry.

Joshua was announced as part of the 12 British athletes shortlisted for the awards – with the winner to be named on December 17 at Liverpool's Echo Arena – along with the likes of Lewis Hamilton,Harry Kane, Sir Mo Farah and Johanna Konta.

The 28-year-old is the leading favourite for the award at the end of a season that saw him add the IBO World Heavyweight – and WBA Super Heavyweight - titles to his IBF belt with a glorious victory over Wladimir Klitschko in April.

And as Joshua looks ahead to more potential glory, the Brit took some time away from the ring to hang out with two-time Premier League winner Henry - before offering the Frenchman a friendly Christmas invitation.

'Good to see you @thierryhenry P.S. There's a seat for you at the Christmas table,' Joshua wrote on Instagram.
