Golf's world number one Rory McIlroy defeated Fifty Shades Of Grey film star Jamie Dornan in a recent promotional game of Circular Soccer.

The pair, both from Northern Ireland, faced off in Belfast with McIlroy claiming a 2-1 victory.

Circular Soccer describes itself as a new way to play and train football with players competing on a circular playing pitch around a central three-sided goal.

This format "naturally changes the way players think about space and time on the ball", according to the official website

The company's aims include getting more people involved with the sport and improving the technique of those who play.
