Tony Blair kicked a ball through a banner bearing the message: "Let's kick racism out of football" in a school near the Football Association's headquarters in London. He said: "Racism is not just wrong, it is illogical, it has no place in a decent society."

Schools were invited last month to produce work linked to the theme - more than 2,000 have responded.
