Over 25 squads took part, with Beaumont FC coming out on top at the end of a hard day of competition.

The ILFL was established in 2001 and is one of numerous leagues to play on the 80 pitches in the shadow of London’s Olympic Park.

A spokesman said: “As football’s squillionaires get ready to strut their stuff in Brazil, it’s great to see there are still real football heroes out there playing the beautiful game for nothing but love!”
