Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has taken the lead role in a TV ad for a Chilean wine brand.

The ad for Casillero del Diablo, United's 'official wine partner', also features turns from Rooney's Old Trafford teammates Ryan Giggs and Patrice Evra.

On this evidence careers in Hollywood are unlikely to beckon for the trio once their playing days are over.
