When not on the pitch, Varane is an eager gamer, playing a variety of FPS and sporting games. With his signing, he joins the growing HyperX family of international ambassadors and devoted gamers such as German international soccer player, Marco Reus, Tottenham and England soccer player, Dele Alli, award-winning artist Post Malone, and legendary Twitch streamer, Shroud.
