British Nigerian Footballer Dele Alli is not only skillful on the football field but also a master at video games.
The England and Tottenham Hotspur player was snapped by his girlfriend, Ruby Mae, playing video games on Tuesday night ahead of the win over Watford in the Carabao Cup.
And the lingerie model poked fun at her beau’s gaming obsession, plastering the geek emoji all over a picture shared in an Instagram story.
Alli was the picture of concentration as he showed off his gear, complete with a headset, microphone and a proper gaming chair.
In April, the 22-year-old displayed his skills for all to see when he streamed himself playing the popular online game Fortnite to over 35,000 people.
Alli even spurned watching Bayern Munich’s Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid that night in order to play his favourite game.
Last month Alli was back on Twitch, playing a beta version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, due for release next month.
Alli regularly references Fortnite in his goal celebrations, including after he scored England’s second goal against Sweden in this year’s World Cup quarter-final. It was popular among the England squad in Russia, with Alli telling The Times he was the best in the squad.
“Just now we played,’ he said. ‘Me, Harry Kane, John Stones and Jamie Vardy against Harry Maguire, Nick Pope, Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier. It was the first to three wins and my team won.’
