Indian cricket star Virat Kohli has gone vegan, and says the change in lifestyle has improved his performance.

Kohli - who is captain of India's national cricket team - started his plant-based diet about four months ago, but had been considering the change for years beforehand.


According to the Times of India, a source has said that Kohli is 'feeling stronger than ever before'.

A source also report improved digestion - and said that the athlete isn't missing meat, dairy, or eggs.

Vegan athletes

Kohli is now one of a long list of professional athletes to adopt a vegan diet.

He's joined the likes of pro footballer Héctor Bellerín, surfer Tia Blanco, F1 racer Lewis Hamilton, figure skater Meagan Duhamel, and boxer David Haye - all of whom advocate for a plant-based diet.
