London:

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has expressed regret after pictures of him smoking during a holiday in Las Vegas appeared in the British media.

"The smoking? Of course I regret it," Wilshere was quoted as saying by the Sunday editions of several British newspapers.

Wilshere was photographed smoking a cigarette outside a nightclub last year and vowed it would never happen again. The recent images showed him smoking amongst friends in a Las Vegas swimming pool.

"I've been seen before doing it. I said then I made a mistake and I have made a mistake again. People make mistakes," the 22-year-old added.

"I'm young and I'll learn from it. I realise the consequences it has and the effect on kids growing up.

"I have kids myself and I don't want them growing up to think their dad smokes and it's OK for a footballer to smoke, because it's not. It's unacceptable and I will accept the consequences and I will move on," Wilshere said.
