Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has teamed up with professional golfer Rory McIlory to film a new Nike advert.

The promotional event - laid on by the pair's shared sponsor - took place on the golf course on Monday afternoon, affording an opportunity for the England international and the Northern Irishman to enjoy a brief kickabout together.

McIlroy is a diehard Manchester United fan, and so will have relished the chance to test himself against Rooney in a challenge that appears to combine the skills needed for both golf and football.

The current world No.6's enjoyment filming alongside an Old Trafford favourite was reciprocated by the 27-year-old, who posted on his official Facebook page:

"It was a pleasure to meet Rory McIlroy at the weekend, great guy!"

Rooney and McIlroy were also pictured together in Manchester on Saturday evening, enjoying a night out at the new 'Neighbourhood' bar and restaurant.

After the fun and frolics of filming the new Nike advert, Rooney's attention will now quickly turn to Manchester United's forthcoming Champions League clash against Shakhtar Donetsk.
