While fans know him for his huge voice and hit songs like 'Battle Scars' it turns out Guy is a nifty sportsman too.

In a Reddit thread discussing the singer's fanbase, someone shed some new light on Guy being a pretty skilled cricketer.

"I dunno about his music but he randomly filled in for my cricket team a few years ago and absolutely carved up," the person said.

"50 off 17 and 3 wickets, so he’s got a fan here!"

The comment was met with delight from other fans.

"That's actually hilarious. Imagine turning up to your Saturday league game and getting absolutely pumped by Guy Sebastian of all people," one person said.

"I knew a guy who played indoor against him once and said everyone was ribbing him, but he was a great sport about it," another shared. "Laughed along then absolutely smashed them at cricket. So I think his skills are verified."

"I’m a chef, and have cooked a few shindigs for him. He’s always very respectable and makes sure to come into the kitchen afterwards and personally thank everyone for their hard work. Leaves a tip that is designated for the kitchen," one person shared.

"He was my singing teacher just before he went on Australian Idol and can verify that he is an absolutely lovely person and a very talented musician," another said.
