Football fans will march to the Premier Leagues offices in London today, to demand cheaper tickets to matches.

The 'Affordable Football for All' demonstration, organised by the Football Supporters' Federation, will march from Marble Arch to the Premier League and Football League headquarters, where a delegation of fans will meet with the football authorities.

Over 1,000 fans are expected to join the protest.

13 Premier League clubs have raised season ticket prices this year.

Arsenal is the most expensive club in the country to watch through 2014-15; their cheapest season ticket is £1,014, 3% higher than last year, and their most expensive is £2,013.

Mo Farah claims gold in Euro men's 10,000 metres

Olympic champion Mo Farah has won another gold medal for Great Britain, battling through driving rain to claim first place in the men's 10,000 metres at the European Championships.

The star runner went into the lead with 600m left on the track, making a final push to surge clear in the final 60m.

And it was a double celebration for the British team as Farah was followed by Andy Vernon to claim the silver, having managed to overtake Turkey's Ali Kaya in the last few metres.

The win helped bring a smile back to Farah's face in what has been a tough competitive year for the athlete.

He collapsed part-way through the New York half-marathon, finished a disappointing eighth in the London Marathon, and was unable to compete in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow due to a tooth infection.

Pavey: Kids care more about sports day than gold medal

Record-breaking runner Jo Pavey's young children are more concerned about whether she can beat the other mums at their school sports day, her husband has joked.

Her son Jacob is four, while Emily is just 11 months old - and despite wowing fans by becoming the oldest ever female European champion, the youngsters are barely interested.

Her husband and coach Gavin told ITV News that Emily claps along with the crowd and Jacob cheers - but said he is more concerned that his champion mother comes in first in the annual school 'mums race'.

Family's shock and pride at Pavey's record-breaking win

The husband and coach of four-time Olympian champion Jo Pavey has spoken of his shock and pride after she became the oldest ever female European champion.

Runner Jo claimed gold in the women's 10,000 metres at the opening night of the European Championships in Zurich yesterday.

Her husband Gavin told ITV News that they had expected the Exeter mother-of-two to medal as she had been doing well in training - but said it still came as a "massive shock" when she crossed the finish line in first place.

It came just 10 days after she won bronze in the 5,000m at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
