Stallone and the Klitschkos attended the opening of the production - which features 'Eye of the Tiger' among its musical numbers - this week in Hamburg.

"He's an American character but he's not," Stallone told ITN at the TUI Opera House.

"He's really universal, and the mere fact that the German people have embraced him - they're the first ones to do the world premiere - is showing how much the world has changed."

Wladimir added: "Sylvester Stallone is the pope of Rocky. Without Sylvester, nothing happens.

"He has given birth to the idea and we had lots of fun during our cooperation and we are very convinced that it will be successful."
