England legend John Barnes showed he hasn't lost his touch when he gave a footballing lesson in Croydon town centre.

The 50-year-old former Liverpool star put youngsters through their paces in a penalty shoot-out in High Street and dished out prizes for the best.

The silky-skilled sportsman was in town for a family fun day held by financial firm Western Union.

A steel band, face painting and games were also on offer.
