YouTube and social media sensation IShowSpeed ​​​​is one of the biggest fans of Virat Kohli. He has time and again openly expressed his love for the former Indian captain, never shying away from admiring the legendary Indian batsman. The star influencer had an interaction with legendary footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, where he introduced the Indian icon to him.

Speed ​​​​tells Zlatan about Virat

In a video that is now going viral on the internet, Speed ​​can be seen asking the former AC Milan player if he knows Virat Kohli. He said: “Do you know Virat Kohli?” However, the football icon admitted that he had never heard of Virat. Speed ​​then showed him a picture of Kohli but that didn’t help the famous striker to recognise the cricket icon either. Speed ​​was shocked by this and asked him “You don’t know Virat Kohli? You’ve never seen him before?”

Zlatan was humble in his response and said that he has never seen cricket. He said, “I have never seen cricket in my life. Not to be disrespectful, but no.” After this, Speed ​​​​started praising Kohli and called him the GOAT of cricket. Zlatan also got curious after seeing Speed’s interest and asked him if he also liked cricket.

However, this is not the first time that Speed ​​​​has introduced Virat Kohli to a football legend. During one of his interactions with Brazilian Ronaldo Nazario, the influencer asked the same question to the striker. Ronaldo recognized Virat immediately after seeing the picture.
