UK grime MC Stormzy has helped footballer Paul Pogba mark his record-breaking transfer to Manchester United with a promo video for Adidas.
French international Pogba, who left the English club for Juventus for £1.5m in 2012, has completed a move back to Old Trafford for an initial fee of £89m. The transfer is the biggest fee ever paid for a footballer, surpassing the £85m Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013.
To mark the move, Stormzy has appeared in an Adidas promo video, rapping his 2015 freestyle ‘Nigo Duppy’ while Pogba dances along. Watch that clip below.

Stormzy later reposted the video on Twitter, saying of Pogba: “He’s back”.
Meanwhile, the grime star is preparing to release his debut album, which is expected this summer. He has already shared its first single, ‘Scary’.
Speaking to Clash recently, Stormzy said that with his album he wants listeners “to understand who I am, what I love, what I hate, what I treasure, what has stunted my growth, helped my growth. I want everything to be in this record.”
