Fans of Apple TV's sports drama Ted Lasso and Frank Turner may have noticed a familiar song when a short trailer for their upcoming third season was posted on February 14. 

Turner's ninth single I Still Believe soundtracks the AFC Richmond players and staff creating their own take on their manager Ted's inspirational 'BELIEVE' banners for their dressing room. 

The song, taken from his 2011 album England Keep My Bones, was performed the following year at the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony in London.

"Well folks, it’s finally here - something I’ve known about for ages but have been under strict instructions to keep under wraps," says Turner. "The trailer for the forthcoming third (and final?) season of Apple TV’s Ted Lasso features a song you might recognise.

"Seriously, I was a huge fan of the show anyway, and was totally blown away by them asking to use the tune," he adds. "It’s a great honour, and if I do say so myself, it makes perfect sense. Now we just have to wait for the season to air!"

Season 3 of Ted Lasso premieres March 15 on Apple TV+, but you check out this taster below.
