Sky Creative: The Greatest Show on Earth

Idris Elba is the ringmaster as Sky sports celebrates its upcoming sporting coverage with a circus tent full of star players and commentators, including Emma Raducanu, Ben Stokes, Sophia Dunkley, Ella Toone and Nasser Hussain. The spectacular film finishes with an acrobatic penalty from Manchester City star Erling Haaland. The spot was directed by Daniel Kleinman through production company Rattling Stick.
