Antoine Griezmann gets Huawei call
The Frenchman, who plays as a forward for Spanish side Atlético Madrid, follows in the footsteps of FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi in becoming a representative of the brand.
Huawei announced the deal alongside the unveiling of its latest product, the P10 smartphone. Griezmann will appear in promotional campaigns for the device around the world, particularly in his home nation of France.
Having confirmed earlier this year that it would not renew its premium partnership with French champions Paris Saint-Germain, the deal with Griezmann gives Huawei a continued presence in the country.
The international forward, who appeared for France during their 2-0 friendly defeat against Spain this week, has existing deals in place with sportswear brand Puma, Apple-owned headphones manufacturer Beats, and Proctor & Gamble, for who he promotes both the Gillette and Head & Shoulders product lines.
