China's president Xi Jinping in Manchester as part of UK visit


China's president Xi Jinping will be in Manchester as he comes to the end of his UK visit. A mixture of excitement and protest is expected for what is believed to be the first time the city has hosted a state visit.

The president will tour a football academy to meet former players and watch a training match.

They will meet the team's former players Patrick Vieira and Mike Summerbee, and ex-Manchester United stars Gary Neville and Denis Law - nicknamed The King - whose glittering career also involved spells at City.

The president and Mr Cameron will also visit the National Football Museum where they will witness former City player and Chinese international Sun Jihai being inducted into the hall of fame.
