Michael Palin heads to Canary Wharf

Former Monty Python star Michael Palin took time out from his travels last week to sign copies of his new book in Canary Wharf.

The intrepid explorer recently released a book on Brazil, coinciding with his latest television series which sees him focus on the country at a remarkable time in its history, as it prepares for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games.

Hundreds of fans flocked to Waterstones in Jubilee Place to catch a glimpse of the 69-year-old, who is one of the UK’s most treasured TV personalities.
