You're probably aware that the Rugby World Cup begins tonight. And you might be quite excited. But not as excited as Rio Ferdinand.

The former England and Manchester United player has posted an hilarious video in which he offers words of encouragement to the England team whilst pumping weights.

"Boys, England rugby team the nation calls ya," he begins.

"I'm here, I'm here for ya. Alright. I've put the miles in. You've put the miles in. You've had the meetings. You've had the tactics thrown to ya. Now's the time to go."

The sweat soaked TV pundit ends the 20 second video by screaming "come on" whilst violently shaking his head from side to side.

After the visuals go black, the audio continues in which the person filming Ferdinand can be heard giggling.
