The takeover, taking place at Waterloo station this week on 9 June, will include a fencing piste, where the British Fencing Team will be showcasing what it takes to be a professional at the sport.

Passers by will also be encouraged to strike their best fencing pose and show their support with a photo moment. Wilkinson Sword will be supporting the fencing team on their #RoadtoRio campaign.

Lucy Oxley, marketing manager for Wilkinson Sword for North West Europe said: "We’re delighted to be backing British Fencing on their road to Rio campaign. Our strong British heritage, which dates back to 1772 and our historical sword making expertise, makes British Fencing the perfect partner for us.

"We hope our support in getting the nation to back the team will give an added boost to what is an exciting time ahead."
