Emiliano Martinez couldn't contain his emotions as Arsenal lifted the FA Cup trophy on Saturday after beating Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley. 

The Gunners' goalkeeper tried in vain to hold back the tears in his post-match interview on the BBC when he was asked about his family back in Argentina.

'I can't really talk about it,' he said, as match-winner came over to congratulate and console him.
