Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil showed off his new Apple watch to his 2.5 million followers on Instagram and, rather interestingly, compared the gadget to the infamous Knight Rider watch.
We were surprised to see David Hasselhoff’s elaborate car referenced by a superstar footballer, but then we remembered how popular the former Baywatch actor and dreadful singer is in Ozil’s home country of Germany.
As he prepares to face his former manager Jose Mourinho this weekend, Ozil snapped himself at an Apple store whilst in the process of trying out the watch which officially goes on sale tomorrow.
As ever with multi-million pound footballers, they have to be first to possess all the latest gadgets and given his profession, Ozil may have purchased the sports edition of the watch.
Arsenal transfer rumours
On the pitch however, our record signing is in the best form since his move from Real Madrid, producing an outstanding assist for Alexis Sanchez’s opener against Reading at Wembley last week.
