Gary Barlow has recorded England's official 2014 FIFA World Cup single.

The single – and its attendant video – were recorded today (March 5) at Sarm Studios in west London, the place where a host of stars gathered to record Band Aid's chart-topping single 'Do They Know It's Christmas' in 1984.

The track sees the Take That singer joined by a host of pop stars and ex-footballers. They included former Spice Girls members Mel C and Emma Bunton, former Girls Aloud member Kimberley Walsh, Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker, 1966 World Cup hero Geoff Hurst and footballer-turned-pundit Michael Owen, all of whom have appeared on Sport Relief's Twitter feed today.

The star-studded cast also included Conor Maynard, Eliza Doolittle, Katy B and Pixie Lott plus former England internationals Dion Dublin, Gary Pallister, Kenny Sansom, Carlton Palmer, David Seaman, Gary Mabbutt, Glenn Hoddle, Peter Shilton and Martin Keown.

The video will premiere as part of Sport Relief on BBC One on Friday, March 21.
