Actor and singer David Hasselhoff says he’s a loyal fan of the Welsh rugby team. Next month he’ll get a chance to support them in Hong Kong. ‘The Hoff’ – best associated with the beaches of California (as a lifeguard in Baywatch) and self-driving cars long before Google (Knight Rider) – has been hired as an ambassador for the Hong Kong Sevens rugby tournament, which is sponsored by HSBC and Cathay Pacific. He’ll be hosting the event’s kick-off concert and roaming the stadium during the rowdy weekend. “I’m Hoffcrazy to be this year’s Ambassador,” he told the South China Morning Post. “I may even bring some of the Baywatch babes, although from what I understand about the Sevens, there should be several people dressed up in their red bikinis already.” The organisers say 120,000 fans will turn up at the tournament between April 8-10.
