Former India football captain Sunil Chhetri and ex-India captain Virat Kohli are very close friends. The two share a close bond given Kohli’s love for football and Chhetri’s admiration for the game of cricket.

Virat Kohli recently retired from T20Is after helping India win the T20 World Cup with an amazing 76-run knock in the final against South Africa.

Chhetri, who shares a very good bond of friendship with Kohli, revealed in a podcast that the former Royal Challengers Bengaluru skipper is a very funny guy who can "crack anyone up".

"He is a good dude. He is genuinely a nice guy. I'm sure that many people will never get to know that part of him. He is amazingly funny. Even if I bring him and if you are oblivious to the fact that he's Virat Kohli, he will crack you up. He is funny, apart from the fact that all the other great things he is. He is a good guy which is nowadays very difficult," said Chhetri on a podcast with YouTuber Raj Shamani.

"Some way our upbringing is the same. We come from the same place, we have similar dreams; we just chose 2 different sports. That is why probably we connected. I have so much love and respect for him & his family," he added.

Chhetri, who retired from international football, earlier this month, also said his chat with Kohli on social media is generally regarding memes and food.

"Virat sends funny memes, I send back as well - that is the majority chat. Sometimes, we talk about life. The best thing is that, when I tell something, he says 'I understand. I genuinely like him. Forget that he is Virat Kohli. The whole world knows it," he added.
