As a true sports fan, I'm excited to play my part on Monday evening as the greatest athletes past and present unite in Berlin to celebrate everything we love about the sport," Hugh Grant said in a statement.
Grant is a BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning actor and has appeared in films such as 'Four Weddings and a Funeral', 'Notting Hill', 'Florence Foster Jenkins', 'Paddington 2' and most recently, 'The Gentlemen'. Hugh is also a devoted fan of London club Fulham FC and a keen rugby supporter. (ANI)
