Gallery: Trophy hits Beijing

Hundreds of United fans in Beijing were given the chance to see the Barclays Premier League trophy up close as it made its way around the Chinese capital on Saturday.

Accompanied by a club delegation, bloggers from China’s major internet portals and our Chinese website team, the famous trophy that was regained by the Reds in May spent the day visiting Beijing’s major landmarks.

It began in the historic Tiananmen Square, before moving onto the ‘Bird’s Nest’ National Stadium and the ‘Water Cube’ National Aquatics Centre, both built for the 2008 Olympic Games, before making the journey to the Great Wall of China.

And Chinese supporters came out in force to have their photos taken with the trophy and get closer to the 19-times champions.
