'RISK IS SO GREAT'

The use of nitrous oxide as a street drug seems unlike ever. It's often called laughing gas but its dangers are no joke.

The risks are greatest when inhaled from a plastic bag when it's combined with others.

Along with the rush of euphoria, the gas causes dizziness and hallucinations.

Afterwards there's often headaches or intense tiredness. A large dose of nitrous oxide starves the body and brain of oxygen – which is why it can cause death or put the taker in a coma.

Regular users suffer from pain, numbness and coordination issues that stay long-term.

I can not imagine any serious athlete putting his life or career at risk like this once they know the danger.

But Mkhitaryan raises his hand to dropping his head in a lolly out of a sweet bowl.

Emery – a disciplinarian renowned for his meticulous approach.
