In a further blow to Russian football, global sports brand Adidas on Tuesday said it is suspending its partnership with the Russian Football Federation in the wake of the country's invasion of Ukraine.

"Adidas is suspending its partnership with the Russian Football Federation (RFS) with immediate effect," an Adidas spokesperson was quoted as saying by beIN Sports.

The German sportswear manufacturer had been in ties with Russian football for a long time but it has now joined the majority of the global sporting fraternity in censuring the country after it invaded



Ukraine.

Notably, the global football governing body FIFA and the European body UEFA suspended Russian national football teams and the clubs from the country from all competitions until further notice.

“Football is fully united here and in full solidarity with all the people affected in Ukraine,” FIFA and UEFA said in a joint statement.

“Both presidents hope that the situation in Ukraine will improve significantly and rapidly so that football can again be a vector for unity and peace amongst people.”

UEFA also ended its sponsorship with Russian energy giant Gazprom.
