Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has become a shareholder in League Two side Forest Green Rovers.
Bellerin says he has taken a minority holding in the club in order to help develop their environmental and ethical innovations.
Forest Green Rovers became fully vegan in 2015 and became the world’s first carbon-neutral sports club in 2017.
The Spaniard has been outspoken about his passion for conservation and his ambition to tackle climate change, recently making a pledge which saw him plant 3,000 trees for every Arsenal victory during ‘Project Restart’.
