Families had a ball at Bramall Lane as Sheffield United staged its annual community day.

The Olympic-themed event was attended by Blades legend Tony Currie who mingled with thousands of fans, and oversaw presentations for those who took part in football tournaments.

There was also a community relay race, plus face-painting, dancing, a bouncy castle and refreshments.

An inflatable football pitch put up by the Football Unites, Racism Divides organisation was used to demonstrate the ways football can break down barriers between people of different cultures.

The annual event was organised by Sheffield United’s community arm the United Initiative, and supported this year by the King Baudouin Foundation’s Stand Up, Speak Up fund, which promotes equality and diversity.
