Football fans and Visit London employees gathered on the banks of the Thames near Tower Bridge earlier today to show their support for the England 2018 Football World Cup Bid.

After being entertained by John Farnworth, the world freestyle champion, and official football world record holder, we cheered as the FIFA Inspection Boat passed under an open Tower Bridge, and were happy to see members of the FIFA committee waving back.
