Virat Kohli is not only a world-famous cricketer and athlete but a football enthusiast as well.

The India captain is already one of the greatest batsmen of this generation and his fame has crossed international and sporting boundaries. Kohli is co-owner of Indian Super League side FC Goa and and has regularly spoken about having keen interest in various sports and not just cricket.

It therefore didn’t come as a surprise when Kohli was handed a personalised jersey by Premier League side Southampton last week upon the Indian team’s arrival in the city for the fourth Test of the series against England which India ended up losing.

Kohli was pictured alongside Saints ace Danny Ings on Instagram with a Southampton jersey bearing Kohli’s name and his favourite number 18.

Last week, India batsman KL Rahul, accompanied by fast bowler Umesh Yadav, visited the Emirates Stadium to watch Arsenal take on West Ham.

Rahul not only got to watch the game but also met Danny Welbeck. In one of the posts, Rahul and Umesh were seen showing off their footballing skills.
