Dustin Martin wears $350 hoodie to AFL training Melbourne

Dustin Martin showed up for footy training wearing a $350 designer hoodie on Thursday morning ahead of the AFL Grand Final.

The 26-year-old Brownlow Medalist, who rocked a Justin Bieber jumper to training on Tuesday, looked focused as he made his way to the team session in Melbourne. 

It comes as Martin, notoriously shy and often blunt during media interactions, gave a refreshingly open interview after taking out the Brownlow Medal on Monday night.

Speaking to Channel Seven footy commentators Brian Taylor and Wayne Carey, Martin opened up about what goes on during his boys’ trips to Las Vegas.

The footy bad-boy, who famously hopped from one exclusive nightclub to another during a wild post-season Vegas trip with AFL star Dane Swan in 2014, was cryptic with his response.

‘We just go to the movies and drink cups of tea,’ he joked.

When asked how he managed to deal with public attention, Martin gave a humble response.

‘Everywhere you go people want to stop you, I’m a pretty shy person and don’t like to be the centre of attention, but yeah, I just deal with it,’ he said. 

‘It’s pretty surreal, I would never have thought I’d be standing up there winning a Brownlow and playing in an AFL final this week, but i’m just really going to enjoy it.

He said he felt a sense of ‘freedom’ every time he stepped onto the field, where nothing else mattered.

Martin will lead his team, the Richmond Tigers, as slight underdogs into battle against the Adelaide Crows at the MCG on Saturday night.
