Ex-Manchester United and England footballer Rio Ferdinand was spotted by stunned shoppers in Tesco in Orpington on Wednesday evening (August 13).

The sturdy centre back visited the Augustus Lane store for an evening shop at around 7pm.

It is thought he has moved to the Farnborough Park area following his summer transfer to QPR.
