Andy Anson, the former chief executive of England's unsuccessful bid for the 2018 football World Cup, has been announced as one of two new independent directors of the British Olympic Association.
Anson, formerly commercial director of Manchester United and head of the ATP tennis tour, will join commercial lawyer Denise Jagger as non-executive directors on the 16-strong board.

The pair have been appointed to their voluntary positions for two-year terms.
