Manchester United arrived in Brazil on Thursday to bring the Barclays Premier League trophy to fans in Sao Paulo.

The two-day tour stopped first at the Brazilian English Centre, where fans queued from early in the morning for their chance to take photographs, before travelling outside the city to the football club Desportivo do Brasil.

Young players at the club got their hands on the silverware and many spoke of their desire to come to the Premier League and win the trophy for themselves.

Club sponsors Aon held a Top Company For Leaders event, led by Aon Hewitt, at the Hotel Unique on Thursday night and attendees gathered around the trophy before enjoying a glittering drinks reception.

On Friday, the trophy travelled to Pacaembu Stadium, which hosted the 1950 World Cup and is now a football museum.

And the club's training kit partner, DHL, hosted the final event of the Sao Paulo tour, with a barbeque in the Brazilian sunshine for employees.
