The resignation comes as Adidas UK reported its latest financial results in October last year.

The accounts revealed that Adidas UK’s turnover fell from £1.1 billion to £1.045 billion in the 12 months while its pre-tax profits went from £25.6 million to £20.4 million.

In early March, Adidas warned of a €250 million hit to sales this year due to the suspension of its Russian business following its invasion of Ukraine.

Adidas said the €250 million at risk was about half of the company’s total revenues in the region and represented about one percentage point of growth for the total company.
