Football Lookalikes: Meet Rio Ferdinand’s body double

Histon defender out to beat his alter ego’s ex-club

This is Histon FC centre-back Mat Mitchel-King who, we suppose, at a squint looks a bit like Rio Ferdinand. It is probably just a well that he resembles the Manchester United defender at least a bit since he is his body double in Nike adverts. The 25-year-old has also played the part of Thierry Henry in the past.

This weekend the Histon skipper has put his lookalike work to one side and is concentrating firmly on overcoming Ferdinand’s former side Leeds in the FA Cup. Mitchel-King is eager to for a third round tie with Manchester United so he can come face-to-face with the man who creates his alternative line of employment.
