Football legend Ian Wright and London Mayor Boris Johnson joined young footballers this morning to mark the handover of the England 2018 World Cup bid to FIFA.

Meanwhile, the 1,752-page bid document travelled from London to Zurich, where it was presented to FIFA officials by David Beckham.

If England wins its bid to host the World Cup in 2018, matches will take place at Wembley Stadium, Arsenal Emirates, Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium and the Olympic stadium.
