Marcus Rashford has been named in Time magazine’s Next 100 most influential people, a list comprising of individuals who are shaping the future of society.
The Manchester United forward is still impressing on the pitch, but his stock has risen off it in the past year on account of the work he has done to combat child food poverty and other issues having a negative impact on society.
The list consists of athletes, entertainers and political leaders, and Rashford features under the title of ‘advocates.’
Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton penned the entry on Rashford.
“By standing up for the most vulnerable in our society, and using his platform and influence to create positive change, Marcus inspired countless others to join him on this mission and cemented his status as a role model,” Hamilton wrote.
