Dele Alli recently took a break from training to live stream himself playing Fortnite.
Watched by tens of thousands of fans including myself on Twitch, the Spurs midfielder showed off what he could do on the online multiplayer game.
And he was pretty good too.
Fortnite’s huge popularity has already seen it influencing what we see on the football pitch, with players such as Alli and Antoine Griezman both performing game-inspired goal celebrations.
For those of you living under a rock for the past six months Fortnite is a co-operative sandbox survival game that was released in 2017 for use on a number of consoles and PC.
Since its launch it has become a behemoth, with its creator Epic Games saying in February that it draws 3.4 million players at once.
The 22-year-old Englishman received credit where it was due for his achievements on the game too and the banter on social media was out in force.
Some watching were reminded of a simpler time however.
Now that would get a big audience.
