Earlier Kohli was spotted with his daughter Vamika enjoying a meal in a cafe. And now, with less than two weeks to go for the Indian Premier League, the Royal Challengers Bangalore star was spotted in London. In the picture doing rounds on social media, the cricketer was spotted wearing a beige sweatshirt and black trousers. 

Recently, Kohli opened up about his love for IPL and said that he loves the tournament because of the camaraderie and connection between the players and fans. In an interview, Kohli told Star Sports, “I absolutely love IPL, also because of the camaraderie you share, so many new players you play with, so many players that you’ve known for a long time who are not from your own country, whom you don’t see often. There’s a reason why everyone loves IPL so much, as there’s a connect, both for players and fans.” 

He added, “You do play all your tournaments which is one team versus another. ICC tournaments come every now and then, but even in ICC tournaments, you don’t interact with other players or see the other team, so often. But in IPL, you’re probably meeting every team just every second or third day, and that’s the beauty of IPL. You are playing in different conditions in a different city with a different team.”
