West Ham United star Robert Snodgrass has teamed up with heavyweight world champion boxer Tyson Fury.
West Ham midfielder Snodgrass and former Rangers star Kris Boyd launched their own podcast in lockdown.
Lockdowntactics has been popular with football fans.
But the West Ham star’s initiative got a shot in the arm this week when Snodgrass managed to bag an interview with world champion Tyson Fury.
Snodgrass announced the coup on Twitter.

The West Ham veteran and former Scotland international’s interview with Fury comes in episode 6 of the podcast.
On YouTube, Snodgrass describes what West Ham and boxing fans can expect.
‘Tyson opens up on his depression and suicide attempts’
“This is a Lockdown Tactics special with World Boxing Champion, Tyson Fury.
“In Mental Health awareness week, Tyson opens up on his depression, suicide attempts and boozing into oblivion. In a brutal and candid interview, he tells Snoddy and Boydy that he didn’t care if Wladimir Klitschko killed him the night they fought for the world title in 2015 Tyson also gives TLT a powerful mental Health message to help people cope with the illness.
“This is knockout stuff. It’s another brilliant episode on The Lockdown Tactics podcast, with Mental Health as its core focus, to offer inspiration and hope. Stay Safe & Enjoy.”
Super fit Snoddy will be raring to go

Snodgrass returns to training this week with West Ham with the season set to resume next month.
And the Scot should be one of the fittest players in the Hammers squad.
That’s after Aaron Cresswell named him as the manager’s pet in an interview with the club’s official website.
The defender ‘named and shamed’ David Moyes’s fellow Scot Snodgrass for going out of his way to impress the Hammers boss during isolation.
