West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola used his break in Sardinia to shoot a local commercial.

The Daily Mail says the under-fire Upton Park boss escaped to Sardinia for a three-day break following West Ham's sixth consecutive defeat, against Stoke, on Saturday. Zola recorded a TV commercial entitled 'Play your most beautiful match with your children.'

Zola, 43, is still idolised on his native island, and made the ad for Sardinia's equal opportunities commission to encourage dads to be better parents.

Filming took place at the Is Arenas di Quartu Sant'Elena stadium in the island's capital Cagliari.
