Virgin and Richard Branson welcomes the World Cup party


Virgin Group has had World Cup fever for a while. Over in South Africa, Virgin Active are keeping fans fighting fit with their special Fans In Training sessions.


Football fans can choose from Bend It My Bru, Supa-Socca Circuti or the racy Streaker Training sessions.


Richard Branson got involved in Streaker Training himself while over in South Africa. He also had time to learn from South Africa's answer to Baddiel & Skinner, the hilarious duo TK & Vusi.


The England squad were flown out to the World Cup by Virgin Atlantic, making sure they arrived in South Africa relaxed and ready to take on the world.


No sooner had they arrived than the almighty noise of the vuvuzela was ringing out – the instrument is sure to be the definitive sound of the tournament. With this in mind, TK & Vusi gave Richard Branson a lesson in playing the vuvuzela – he was soon blowing the tune to God Save The Queen.


From WAG Abbey Clancy's World Cup Girls' Nights In to Virgin Balloon Flights flying the flag for England, Virgin is supporting the World Cup around the world.


Just like these fans from Ulusaba community crèche, enjoy the tournament!
