Anthony Joshua And Lewis Hamilton Are Both In FIFA 22

It's before this clash, which you play out yourself, where you come across AJ and Hamilton and have very brief and awkward interactions.

Joshua, Hamilton, as well as NBA star Joel Embiid and pop star Dua Lipa, all featured in FIFA 21 as playable characters in the Volta mode.

Joshua is an avid FIFA player and had a spell where he was so obsessed with the game that it was affecting his boxing career.

"I used to play FIFA until it affected boxing," he told The Sun.

"I had to stop playing because it affected my sleep and recovery. I could stay up till five in the morning playing it, get up at seven and train. That's how mad it was, it wasn't healthy."

Recently, the 31-year-old warmed up for his championship clash with Oleksandr Usyk by playing Jesse Lingard at FIFA.

Joshua beat the Manchester United with Liverpool and then started playing their classic 'You'll Never Walk Alone' anthem afterwards.
