And Bent has urged people to unite behind the cause, insisting you don't need to be a sportsman to take part.
The Villa frontman said: 'You don’t need to be a professional footballer to get involved with Sport Relief.
'This will help transform lives in the UK and the world’s poorest countries.'

'Something as simple as buying an

across the world’s poorest countries.'
