Events have been taking place across the country to raise money for Sport Relief, after more than £51m was raised on Friday's live show.

Noah, Joe and Felix from Hingham Park Rangers U7 took part in the Sport Relief Mile in Norwich.

The run, which started outside Norwich City Hall in the heart of the city, had about 200 people in each heat. Even the warm-up ahead of the 09:30 start was well attended.

Famous faces have also taken part in charity events around the country. Prime Minister David Cameron ran the Sport Relief Mile at Cutteslowe Park in Oxford. He said it was the third time he had taken part in the "fantastic event" that brings people together "to get active, raise money and change lives".

His wife Samantha also ran the race, opting for a more light-hearted look.

As well as runs, there have also been Sport Relief swimming and cycling events. TV presenters Jeff Brazier, Matt Barbet, Dermot Murnaghan and Steve Backshall created a celebrity start to the 25 mile charity bike ride starting at the velodrome in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford.

Plenty of participants opted for fancy dress.

Sportspeople around the world have shown their support. The England cricket team ran a mile in the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Bangladesh.

Meanwhile supporters have been out in force, donning outfits such as this "super grandad" t-shirt.

The Norton family from Norwich attended the Sport Relief Mile for the fourth year in a row - this time with three generations.
