Beckham Helps England's Bid For World Cup

David Beckham's handed over England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup, promising a tournament of passion.

He's given a speech and presented a document to FIFA officials in Switzerland.

New Prime Minister David Cameron has phoned the head of FIFA Sepp Blatter to give his backing.

Boris Johnson has been presented with a copy of the bid at City Hall.

We'll find out if we've won the bid in December.

It comes as we hear Robbie Williams is adding his voice to the football anthem Three Lions.

He's teamed up with the people behind the original - plus a choir and opera singer - to recreate the song ahead of this summer's World Cup in South Africa.
