Pogba enjoys France's win with Diamond Platnumz

Pogba, who had recently received an invitation to watch France's Round of 16 match against Belgium, per The Athletic, was this time seen enjoying the game in a cosy setting.

In a video sighted by Sports Brief, the former Manchester United star sat in what appeared to be a VIP lounge, dressed in France's away kit for the tournament as he closely followed the action.

As the game progressed, Pogba's anticipation grew, and he erupted in unrestrained joy when Theo Hernandez sent Diogo Costa the wrong way, sealing the victory for Didier Deschamps' team.

The 31-year-old wasn't alone in his celebration. Tanzanian artist and dancer Diamond Platnumz joined him, supporting France and sharing in the jubilant moment.

Born Naseeb Abdul Juma Issack, Platnumz also wore a blue outfit and a matching cap in solidarity with Pogba, basking in France's triumph.

Will Pogba and Platnumz watch France vs Spain clash?

It remains unclear if they will be in attendance at the Allianz Arena in Munich for France's semi-final clash against Spain, which promises to be a thrilling encounter between two pre-tournament favourites.

Regardless, Pogba and Platnumz will support the 2016 runners-up from anywhere in the world in France's quest to win its first European Championship since 2000.

Pogba addresses controversial video

Paul Pogba addressed the controversy over a resurfaced video in which he made allegedly controversial comments, as reported by Sports Brief.

While appealing his four-year doping ban, the 2013 Golden Boy Award winner clarified that his comments were taken out of context and used to generate clicks.

Pogba reassured his fans that he remained "alive."
