Axel Tuanzebe was a standout during the match between Manchester United and Leicester City. The defender played the entire match with an Apple Watch on his wrist. That is very strange, because officially you as a player are not allowed to play with accessories at all.
It is not clear why Tuanzebe wore an Apple Watch, football fans on Twitter understood very little about it.
Is Tuanzebe wearing an Apple Watch or am I losing it

Footballers are not allowed to wear accessories under FIFA rules. Wearing necklaces, earrings, rings and watches is all prohibited. Referees or other officials often also check before the match whether someone is wearing jewelry, which does not seem to have happened today. There may be a medical reason, but this is not (yet) known.
Would be so jokes if someone called Tuanzebe and his Apple Watch started going off on the pitch
