Usain Bolt shows off his football skills in the latest Virgin Media TV advert.

The clip starts with the Jamaican sprint legend - who famously claimed he is good enough to play for Manchester United - watching football on the TV at home.

After spinning a ball on his finger, he takes it outside and kicks it to friends watching the match on a tablet next door.

Bolt then boots another ball to a friend who is keeping up with the game on his phone whilst waiting for a train.

The final ball crashes into a nearby hut, demolishing a model moon base being built by none other than Sir Richard Branson, dressed in a full astronaut suit.

Richard Larcombe, Brand and Marketing Director at Virgin Media, explained that the advert is about promoting Virgin Media TV as the best place to watch sport in the UK.

Virgin Media subscribers can access both Sky Sports and BT Sport, ensuring they can watch all 154 live Barclays Premier League games on live TV this season.

"So many people love sport so we’re delighted to offer all the live action for customers to enjoy at home or on the go," Mr Larcombe stated.

"We are showing everyone they can take those must-see matches out and about on laptops, smartphones and tablets too."

Football fans can find out exactly when and who their favourite teams are playing with Virgin Media's new football fixture generator.

The tool offers channel listings and kick-off times, making it easier for fans to keep up with the latest action.
