Cloud-based video-sharing start-up Grabyo has bagged footballing superstars Thierry Henry, Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie as investors and “global ambassadors.”

Grabyo facilitates real-time TV and video-clip sharing on social media. Since launching just over a year ago, Grabyo  has worked with over 30 major broadcasters and rights holders – bringing consumers real-time highlights from some of the world’s biggest events in sport and music.

“Being away from London makes it harder to keep up with what’s happening in European football,”explains Henry, New York Red Bulls. “Grabyo makes it easy for fans to follow the action by making the best moments available in an instant. I am looking forward to helping the company grow.”

Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea FC, adds: “Videos and photos are my most popular posts on Twitter and Facebook… I am looking forward to working with Grabyo to bring video highlights to my fans in real time.
