One of the world's biggest sporting stars was on hand in Dubai today to open "the world's largest Under Armour store".

Michael Phelps - a brand ambassador for the global sporting giant - hosted the grand opening event at the Dubai Mall store and took part in an exclusive question and answer session.

The American swim star spoke about the importance of dedication and training. “It’s an amazing opportunity to join Under Armour and open their newest Brand House in Dubai,” said Phelps.

“Witnessing the expansion of the brand from my hometown in Baltimore, Maryland to Dubai and all over the world is incredible and I’m honored to be part of the brand’s ability to empower athletes everywhere.”

The historic partnership between Godolphin and Under Armour marks the first time a leading global sports brand has teamed up with an international equestrian organisation to stock a bespoke clothing range.
