They’ve been working hard covering the World Cup for ITV, but Arsenal legends Ian Wright and Patrick Vieira took time out from their hectic schedule to play some footvolley in Rio.

The Gunners duo, who won the Premier League title together in 1998, were joined by fellow ITV pundits England legend Glen Hoddle, Italy’s World Cup-winning captain Fabio Cannavaro and Sunderland manager Gus Poyet in front of a big crowd on Monday afternoon.

Vieira, who spent nine seasons at Arsenal, roped in his former France team-mates Sylvain Wiltord and Olivier Dacourt to play footvolley, which is similar to volleyball but using the head and feet, as the former stars thrilled the locals on the world-famous Ipanema beach.
