Ivory Coast football star Didier Drogba has arrived to a hero's welcome in China, to take up a contract to play for Shanghai Shenhua.

Hundreds of fans of the struggling Chinese Super League team greeted the 34-year-old former Chelsea star at Shanghai's Pudong airport.

Drogba's reported $300,000 (£193,000) a week salary makes him one of the world's highest paid footballers.
