New Delhi: Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli on Thursday pushed the cause of physical fitness and encouraged kids to play outdoor sports while launching his personal athleisure line with a German sports lifestyle brand.
After unveiling his personal One8 line, Kohli, who recently turned 29, said all health concerns will disappear if one is able to take care of one’s body. For the uninitiated, 18 happens to be the Indian skipper’s jersey number.
“There is so much of technology that children nowadays don’t go out and play..they are more interested in video games and indoor stuff, which wasn’t the case during our times,” Kohli said here.
“I want to encourage kids to come out and play sports. When I was growing up there were no such facilities but we created our own badminton courts out of a small area. That’s how you develop, it’s not about going to stadiums to play, you can create your own space and play.
