Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has publicly apologized on social media for  cheating on his wife, admitting to week-long rumors he had an early-morning affair with glamour model Celia Kay. This is Celia.

The affair is supposed to have occurred the night before Arsenal’s match against Crystal Palace on Feb. 2 in the team’s hotel room, breaking club rules. The picture above from the Sunday Sun, said to be taken by Kay, shows Giroud in his briefs in the room.

The married Frenchman had denied reports earlier, but now confessed on the indiscretions via Twitter, in both English and French:

Giroud’s apology came just 90 minutes before Arsenal’s FA Cup 2-1 victory against Liverpool, for which he was notably absent from the first XI. Club manager Wenger answered why he left Giroud on the bench after the match:

"I kept Giroud on the bench because he looked a little tired. I know where you want to lead me, slowly but surely, but he has made a statement, and there’s not much more to add to that. I want to respect his privacy as well."

The scandal really couldn’t have come at a worse time. The Gunners play in the match of their season against Bayern Munich in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg on Wednesday.

As if getting outed for cheating on your wife by a newspaper picture of you in your briefs isn’t bad enough of a look, the last tweet before Sunday’s apology posts was this one:

The one thing Giroud can feel good about? He’ll never top Kolo Toure’s ridiculous affair story. You remember the story, when Toure pretended to his mistress he was a French car salesman? Yeah, that one:
