Arsenal star Theo Walcott and his wife describe the torment they endured during a heart operation to save their newborn son's life 

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott and his wife Melanie have spoken out over the distressing ordeal they had to go through following the birth of their son Finley.
The couple, speaking to Hello! magazine, learned their newborn baby had a heart defect shortly after his birth just under a year ago.
Walcott's wife said it was 'the longest two and a half hours of our lives' during Finley's operation to correct the problem with his heart.
Melanie said: 'Finley had a routine check and they found a murmur, which, again is normal. But it should go after 24 hours.
'But it didn't and it was discovered he had a valve that wasn't working properly. 
Finley, who will turn one on April 10, has made a full recovery since the operation at Royal Brompton hospital in London. 
During the interview, Melanie revealed that Finley is following in his father's footsteps by kicking footballs from his baby walker.
