THE Continental Road to Rio Roadshow made its way to Headley on Tuesday – allowing local football fans to enjoy a little piece of World Cup build-up fun.

Continental Tyres, which is a sponsor of this summer’s World Cup, arrived at Headley Tyres on the A339 Newbury Road.

The stop-off point gave supporters the chance to meet Fuleco, the Brazil 2014 armadillo official mascot, and send the England team a good luck message via a photo booth.

Linda Dunn, managing director of the tyre centre, said: “We were very excited to host the Road to Rio Roadshow, and were delighted that Continental included us in the tour schedule.”
