Arcade Fire’s Win Butler has been perfecting his basketball skills on the band’s world tour.

The 6ft 4inch singer surprised basketball players in Manchester recently when he turned up to play a three-on-three tournament.

"A few doubted his skills at first just because of how he looks,” a source told The Sun. “But it turns out he was brilliant around the court."

As well as shooting some hoops, Butler and the rest of Arcade Fire are known to enjoy games of tabe tennis ahead of their gigs.

Arcade Fire were in Manchester at the beginning of this month to perform a one-off gig at the MEN Arena.

The band released their latest album ‘The Suburbs’ last year and are expected to take a break before beginning work on the follow-up.
