Lionel Messi Tries Cricket, Roger Federer Tries Sumo Wrestling in New Ad

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterDecember 27, 2016

Lionel Messi and Roger Federer have teamed up for a new Gilette advert showcasing their ability at all kinds of different sports.

Messi proves himself rather handy at cricket (it's not the first time, either) before moving on to fresh sports including tennis and ice hockey.

But perhaps it's Federer who steals the show here—if you've always wondered what he'd look like if he were a sumo wrestler, this is the moment you find out. Admittedly, you may not have been wondering that, but the answer may nonetheless amuse you.

And last of all, without spoiling the ending for you—did the ball go in? We'll leave it up to you to decide that in the comments section.
