Kenyan ‘metro guy’ captures hearts of football fans in Qatar

A Kenyan World Cup employee in Qatar has become an early fan favourite of the tournament – judging by the TikTok videos made in his honour.

The staff member, perched atop a lifeguard-esque chair, has been tasked with directing football fans to a nearby Metro station.

Armed with a foam finger and megaphone, the Kenyan repeatedly can be heard calling out ‘metro, metro, metro’ to passing crowds.

Countless videos now scatter TikTok, with some football fans even spotted leaning in to his megaphone to have a go at his token phrase.

The ‘Metro guy’ has amassed thousands of views online.

One TikTok user wrote: ‘Saw him today, he really changed everybody’s mood, everyone was smiling.’

‘I think this guy is more famous than Messi now’, another added.
