Gallery: Trophy in Africa

Manchester United have been warmly welcomed by fans all around the world on the DHL Champ19ns Trophy Tour so far, and it was no different in Africa earlier this month.

Former United players Andrew Cole, Gary Bailey and Quinton Fortune accompanied the Premier League trophy at various stages across the continent from 2 to 14 April, visiting a variety of locations in South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Ghana and Senegal.

And supporters came out in their droves to welcome the ex-Reds and celebrate United's historic 19th league title by having their photo taken with the famous silverware.

Representatives from the club took hundreds of photos during a colourful trip – click the image of Cole above to see a gallery of the best of them.
