Didier Drogba uses laces to tackle Aids

Footballers including Ivory Coast and Chelsea striker Didier Drogba have teamed up with U2 singer Bono to launch an initiative selling red bootlaces to help fight HIV/Aids.

He wore a pair of the red laces when he scored two goals in Chelsea's 3-0 victory over Arsenal on Sunday.

Alongside him supporting the campaign to "Lace Up. Save Lives" were team mate Joe Cole, Andrei Arshavin and Denilson of Arsenal, Marco Materazzi of Inter Milan, Everton's Lucas Neill, and Fulham's Clint Dempsey and Seol Ki-Hyeon.
