Eli Manning has defended Travis Kelce's decision to visit Taylor Swift in Argentina.

While speaking to People for an interview published on Thursday, the New York Giants alum discussed the Kansas City Chiefs player's decision to visit the All Too Well hitmaker in Argentina during his bye week.

"I think for him to travel, there's nothing wrong with traveling, going somewhere," Eli, 42, said of Travis. "Hey, if he wants to go and support his girlfriend and see her play a concert, I've got no problem with that."

Page Six revealed on Monday that Travis, 34, would be flying to Buenos Aires to visit the Lover singer during the South America leg of her Eras tour.

The sports star asserted, "I think that's the idea," explaining that a bye week "is the time to rest the body, rest the mind a little bit, recharge yourself to get ready for that second half of the season".

The Kansas City Chiefs are set to compete against the Philadelphia Eagles on 20 November. Travis's brother, Jason, plays for the Eagles.

Taylor, 33, and Travis first sparked romance rumours when the singer attended a Kansas City Chiefs game in September, sitting beside the player's mother Donna Kelce in the stands.
