British actor Idris Elba has teamed up with Pepsi Max's 'Beats of the Beautiful Game' to direct a short film in the build-up to next month's World Cup in Brazil.

The Luther star directed and wrote the six-minute piece entitled 'Unstoppable', which is accompanied by music from R3hab and Eva Simmons.

The short film, which is set in the 1970s and features football skills from Zach Hamilton, is part of Pepsi Max's exclusive album consisting of 11 tracks dedicated to the sport.

"Football is uniting – it's about the fans and it's about the players," said Elba. "Everybody loves sports, everybody loves competition, but when your country is playing against another country it's that one time that everyone sits in the stands and is unified. It definitely brings people together."
