Carl Thompson is Arsenal’s biggest fan, with the 65 stone supporter named Britain’s fattest man (via The Sun).
The 32-year-old ballooned to 65 stone by consuming roughly 10,000 calories per day (via the Daily Star), with his unhealthy diet looking set to send him to an early grave if he doesn’t change.
The Star reports that the giant Gooner hasn’t left his flat in a year, as he is too heavy to walk. The fact that he is bedbound means he is obviously unable to attend games, but that doesn’t stop him from showing his support for Arsenal.
Carl apparently hasn’t had a job since he was 17, at which point he worked in a food factory.
He is currently living off benefits, with the report revealing that he earns £670 per month through different allowances. Out of that he pays his bills, plus £35 every two weeks for his housing association flat.
The Kent based fan can be seen in his Arsenal sheets, pillow cases, bed sheets, and scarf – also sporting an Arsenal mug.
Carl Thompson is unquestionably Arsenal’s biggest fan!
