India captain Virat Kohli, who is known for his exemplary fitness as much as for his exceptional cricketing skills, on Thursday advised the youth of the country to play outdoor sport and not waste too much time on social media.
"These days you see kids playing video games a lot more than outdoor sport. Physical activity is very important. And my message is not just for the youth, it is for everyone in our country," said Kohli at the launch of his lifestyle brand, One8.
Kohli also advised the youngsters to stay away from social media.
"One should spend only limited time on social media rather being on it for major part of the day, like what is happening nowadays. I too used to spend a lot of time on social media but now I have realised it is a waste of time.
"You can use your time in doing something much more productive," said Kohli.
The launch took place at a popular shopping mall where Kohli, sporting his own label, played a round of basketball and football with a selected bunch of boys and girls.
