In honour of Remembrance Day, trains and stations will be decorated with poppy motifs, and military bands will entertain commuters and passersby at selected locations.

"Our transport network has once again been covered in the eye-catching poppy livery and customers travelling around the Capital will be entertained by famous voices making some special announcements," said London's Transport Commissioner, Mike Brown.

"We are proud to support The Royal British Legion's annual London Poppy Day appeal in honour of the 4,500 transport workers, and all others from across the country, who have given their lives in both World Wars and other conflicts," Mr Brown added.

The Gunners boss will make announcements at Arsenal, Holloway Road and Finsbury Park tube stations, while fellow football legend John Terry will be heard at Fulham Broadway, Earl's Court and West Brompton.

West Ham's Mark Noble and Spurs teammates Harry Kane and Ryan Mason will also be heard at stations across London.
