One of the world's most successful football managers has been announced as an Ambassador Against Hunger for the UN World Food Programme (WFP).

Jose Mourinho, who is currently the manager of Chelsea Football Club in the English Premier League, will use his status to raise awareness about WFP's life-saving work.

The agency estimates that more than 800 million people around the world do not have enough to eat.

Mr Mourinho will champion what is called the "Zero Hunger Challenge", which aims to eliminate hunger in our lifetime.

His wife, Matilde Mourinho, is also being appointed as a Special Ambassador for school feeding.

She is expected to visit WFP operations in sub-Saharan Africa in the coming weeks.

They both join a group of international celebrities and athletes who advocate against hunger, including actress Drew Barrymore, singer Cristina Aguilera, and footballer, Kaka.
