Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were given a scare after being attacked with knives by two unidentified persons in London as revealed in a CCTV footage which was posted on social media on Thursday July 25.
This picture is amazing. The attackers actually look more nervous and frightened than Kolasinac. Hero! pic.twitter.com/ArMge9iJ0s

In the footage, Kolasinac is seen fearlessly fighting off the attackers with bare hands while Ozil returned into the dark-coloured vehicle he was previously about to alight from when the first attacker appeared.

Kolasinac’s bravery in the face of great danger sent Arsenal fans into massive hysteria as they heaped praise on the Bosnia-Herzegovina international for his actions in the incident which could have turned ugly had it not been for his intervention.
The Arsenal wing back also confirmed that he and Ozil were doing fine in a post on social media along with a picture of both players as they arrived for training in London on Friday, which sent Arsenal fans into another round of frenzied reactions to his bravery on Thursday.
This fan expressed his pride at Kolasinac with a meme appropriate for that

In fact, the Hulk has nothing on Sead Kolasinac
When Bruce Banner gets mad he turns into the Hulk. When the Hulk gets mad he turns into Sead Kolasinac. When Sead Kolasinac gets mad, run.

Kolasinac’s actions speaks volume of his character off the pitch says this fan
Big respect. Speaks volumes about you as a person. What you did yesterday is far more important than anything you could do on a football pitch. ??

Some poetic accolades for Kolasinac
Ohhhh Kolašinac is magic,
he wears a magic hat,
and when the roadmen saw him,
they said ‘oh no, fuck that’,
he hit them with his left hand,
he hit them with his right,
and if you try to rob his car you’ll end up in a fight!
