Fortnite: Mesut Ozil has been playing A LOT of Epic Games’ popular battle royale

Would does a multi-millionaire celebrity sportsman do in his downtime you ask?

Mezut Ozil retired from international football following the World Cup this summer.

When you’re earning a reported £350,000 a work and just want to kick back and chill out what would you do?

Well, Ozil spends his time playing Epic Games’ free-to-play battle royale game Fortnite.

Most surprising of all is that he has over 600 wins and a 12% win percentage…

If you play on the PlayStation 4 you may have found yourself facing off against the Arsenal forward and ‘taking the L’ in a build battle.

It turns out then even world-renowned footballers love Fortnite just as much as the rest of us.

Could we see some real life Fortnite celebrations from Ozil in the future?

The Fortnite god hasn’t exactly kept his hobby a secret either, as he can often be found streaming on Twitch to thousands of people for hours at a time.

Watch some highlights below.
