Bizarre video shows four-foot lizard near swimming pool in Miami

Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs witnessed a bizarre scene while on holiday in Miami - a huge iguana casually strolling by the swimming pool at his hotel.

The footballer captured the unusual incident on camera and shared the video with his 298,000 Instagram followers.

In the video, the four-foot iguana is seen resting on an umbrella before being disturbed by a member of staff at the hotel. The iguana falls onto the ground before escaping alongside the swimming pool as holidaymakers are seen running away from it.

It's not the only cold-blooded creature to cause a stir this summer. Last month, a photo emerged of a lizard in a plane passenger's in-flight meal.

Air India denied reports after the photo was shared on social media. It was allegedly taken on board a flight from Delhi to London Heathrow.

The airline responded to the picture of a lizard on a meal tray on Twitter and wrote: "#Clarification #Denial #Air India would like to clarify that the news on Twitter & elsewhere regarding a "lizard in meal tray".

"On board AI 111 DEL-LHR of 11th June, is #false & #baseless.

"No such complaint has been received from any passenger on board the flight or at Air India office in LHR."

But a source told The Times of India: "A flight attendant got the said meal from the galley and soon after it was placed on to the tray, the passenger was heard screaming.

"The passenger was very upset and said that he would lodge a complaint with the airline on landing."
