Football brings "joy" to people and relieves their "sorrows" and ultimately promotes a more peaceful world; that's according to the world renowned former Arsenal and Nigerian national team player, Nwankwo Kanu.

Kanu, who is also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and the founder of the Kanu Heart Foundation in Lagos, was at UN Headquarters in New York to promote the role sport can play in building peace and development.

Daniel Dickinson asked him how football can bring people together.
