Louis Rees-Zammit took centre stage at the Kansas City Chiefs media day and fans are all saying the same thing.

The former Wales wing took part in his first-ever media day at his new club Chiefs, posing in front of various cameras as speckled light flashed onto him.

Smiling to the camera in full Chiefs kit, with his trusty number nine emblazoned onto the front of the red jersey, Rees-Zammit flexed his bicep as the lights turned KC red.

Chiefs posted this footage to their X, formerly Twitter, account, and accompanied the post with the star emoji. It's fair to say Chiefs fans are extremely hyped to see the Penarth-born man in action for their Super Bowl-winning side, with everyone singing from the same hymn sheet in the comments.

"Kid could be a star," said one. "Can't wait to see what he's got this season," said another.

"Rees Lightning is gonna amaze... bookmark it," predicted one. Others simply commented "star" or "aura".

The 23-year-old has been impressing in training of late, and has even been receiving tips from Chiefs stalwart Mecole Hardman. The pair were filmed in training together as Hardman spoke to the former Gloucester Rugby wide man. Rees-Zammit has shown good hands during reps in the last few weeks, and will be an integral part of the Chiefs' kick-off return game.

Chiefs assistant head coach Dave Toub has spoken highly of Rees-Zammit since he's come into the set-up in Kansas.

“Louis has done above and beyond what I expected. He could kick field goals, he could be a kick-off guy for us. He’s every bit as good as [safety] Justin [Reid] in moving the football on kick-offs,” the coach told reporters at a press conference.

“He’s really working hard at the return job. I’ve got him in there as a starter right now so he gets as many reps as he can. He’s a student of the game, he comes in after practice, he wants to be great and he’s a great athlete.”

Rees-Zammit was also recently seen taking part in a softball game with fellow Chiefs stars, and casually hit a home run in the process (despite previously stating he had never played before). Read more here.
