Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was spotted punting on the River Cam on Saturday afternoon.

The Frenchman, who recently left the London Premier League club after 22 years in charge, relaxed with family and friends including daughter, Lea, who graduated in veterinary medicine last year from the University of Cambridge.

Wenger, 68, who is being heavily linked with the vacant Real Madrid manager’s job, looked relaxed as he shook hands and posed for photos before boarding a guided punt from Quayside, operated by Let’s Go Punting.

Punting boss Trevor Monks - a Liverpool fan - put chauffeur James Ashton in charge of steering the punt as he is not a football fan, so he knew he wouldn’t hassle the Gunners legend during the 45-minute tour.

After the punting, Wenger is reported to have headed into Fitzwilliam College, which his daughter attended.

Lea, who studied at the University of Cambridge’s Department of Veterinary Medicine, is a trainee in the Beltrao research group at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), based on the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton. The institute explores the use of big data in biology.

The Beltrao research group studies how cellular functions have diverged during evolution as well as how they are altered in disease.
