Thierry Henry will be part of the BBC's World Cup commentary team, working as a studio analyst.

A report in the Daily Mail confirmed that the Arsenal legend will join the panel of experts next summer in Brazil.

B/R readers will recall his handiwork on Sky Sports, as reported by our own Will Tidey.

Rio Ferdinand, Clarence Seedorf and Phil Neville have also been confirmed alongside presenter Gary Lineker and long-standing pundits Alan Shearer and Alan Hansen.

Henry, who played in four World Cup finals, was quoted as follows:

I am delighted to be joining Gary Lineker and the rest of the BBC team for the tournament in Brazil.

I've enjoyed playing in World Cups, but to experience it as a fan and studio analyst will be a new, exciting challenge.

I've been fortunate enough to play with and against many of the players taking part, so will look forward to watching their performances this summer.

The 36-year-old New York Red Bulls player will make his debut as a Match of the Day panellist on Saturday night.
