Apart from football, Paul Pogba showed off his basketball and street dance skills in Shanghai.

Paul Pogba showed up in Shanghai over the weekend as part of his China tour. The Manchester United midfielder not only presented his football skills, but also showed off his basketball and dancing talents.

Shanghai was his second stop after Chengdu in Sichuan Province. At an open-air venue beside the China State Shipbuilding Co Pavilion in Huangpu District, Pogba made a stylish appearance when he stepped onto the stage with hip-hop movements. Together with Shanghai Greenland Shenhua player Liu Ruofan, Pogba exchanged football skills with a few local young players before showing them the FIFA World Cup trophy he brought to Shanghai.

The French international scored during his country's 4-2 victory over Croatia in the final in Russia.

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will meet at Shanghai's Hongkou Football Stadium on July 25 for an International Champions Cup match. When asked whether he would be playing in the Shanghai match, Pogba gave a cunning answer.

"That's a good question that I have been asking myself too. We will see!" said Pogba.

After showing off some basketball skills, all-rounder Pogba joined two local rappers for a battle on stage before ending the evening with a piece of extempore street dance.
