It’s not every day that you get to chat with one of England’s best football strikers. But thanks to the new Hugo Boss Boss Bottled United (an updated blend of spearmint, woody notes and the exclusive wild buchu plant), I sat down with Harry Kane (who’s heading up the campaign) at The Grove Resort & Spa in Watford on a Thursday afternoon, as you do. And guess what? We didn’t talk about footie once. So here are six non-football facts about Harry Kane that you probably didn’t know…
1. HE HAS A PRETTY COOL LIFE MOTTO
Harry lives by the motto ‘Work hard, not just in your job, but in every way of life’. Yup, he may be a footballer but he still puts even more effort into this family life. How sweet! ‘This was instilled in me by my family,’ he says.
2. THESE ARE HIS TWO FAVE EMOJIS: ❤️ 💪
‘I’d say the emojis that best describe me are the love heart one, because I’m a loving person, and the muscle, because I’m addicted to working hard,’ says Harry.
3. HIS HOLIDAY DESTINATION OF CHOICE IS THE CARIBBEAN
Palm trees and turquoise waters? We’re totally there, too! ‘I love going to The Bahamas,’ he says. ‘The white sand is like nothing else.’ Space for one more, Hazza?
4. HIS PROUDEST MOMENT WAS OFF THE FOOTBALL PITCH
‘The birth of my daughter was by far the most incredible moment of my life,’ says Harry. Cute dad alert!
5. HE LOVES A FOREST WALK
Harry’s perfect Sunday? A walk through the forest. ‘I love taking the dogs out and having a long walk through parks and forests,’ he says. ‘It’s nice to get some peace and quiet for a few hours.’
6. HE’S A BIG FAN OF THE NEW HUGO BOSS BOSS BOTTLED UNITED
It’s hard not to be obsessed with United, we’ll give him that. The sensual, masculine blend is perfect for your signature scent or an evening event. ‘I spritz Boss Bottled United after I work out or play a game,’ he says. ‘It’s my 24-hour scent and keeps me feeling like a boss!’
