N'Golo Kante makes surprise visit to India cricket team hotel to swap sporting tips with KL Rahul and co

The Chelsea and France midfielder is a big fan of India captain Virat Kohli and his teammates so popped along to meet them.

After reaching the top of the football world with France during the summer, N'Golo Kante recently turned his attention to cricket.

Chelsea star Kante, 27, made a surprise visit to the Indian team hotel while they were staying in London during their ongoing five-test tour of England.

Midfielder Kante dropped in to see the tourists and lend his support as they prepared for the fourth test in Southampton, which got under way last week.

Kante is a big fan of India captain Virat Kohli and caught up with a number of other players including batsman KL Rahul and bowler Umesh Yadav during the meeting which was set up by his advisors thanks to their close ties with the Indian cricket team.

India's players were just as keen to rub shoulders with a World Cup winner, congratulate Kante on his starring role in France's success in Russia and see what sporting tips they could exchange with the all-action midfielder.

Kante hopes to follow up his visit with a future trip to the subcontinent.
