Getting up close and personal with members of the Three Stripes team, adidas have laid out the another tool in the battle against boredom in lockdown. ‘The Huddle’ pairs up two ambassadors from opposing disciplines to talk candidly about whatever comes up, and the latest instalment sees Paul Pogba talking with Stella McCartney.

And taking the idea of the close and personal connection of an on-pitch team talk, where players group together to provide a private sanctuary even with thousands of eyes upon them, ’The Huddle’ shows an intimate conversation between two members of the adidas HomeTeam.
