Richard Caborn will head England's World Cup bid
Richard Caborn will lead England's bid to stage the 2018 World Cup after stepping down as Sports Minister.

Caborn has been named Prime Minister Gordon Brown's World Cup ambassador.

After serving as sports minister for six years, Caborn will use his contacts in the international sporting community to gather support for England's bid.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Caborn said: "I'm delighted you've asked me to be your World Cup ambassador and am honoured to accept."

Caborn's successor as sports minister has yet to be named.

In a letter welcoming him to the role, Brown said: "I'm delighted you have agreed to use your valuable experience to act as my World Cup ambassador, working closely with the Culture Secretary and the Football Association, to promote our bid to host the 2018 World Cup."
