Fans were invited to come along, sign the flag and send their congratulations to England’s greatest ever bowler with Nottingham boxing legend Carl Froch also adding his name to it.

Slazenger, a sponsor of Jimmy Anderson, commissioned the 14m x 10m flag, which started its tour at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Monday and will make its way around the country throughout the week.

David Newbury, head of brand marketing, said: “We’re delighted for Jimmy, who has been a fantastic ambassador for the Slazenger brand during our long association.
“This tour is our way of celebrating his achievements and allowing the public to send their congratulations to one of England’s all-time sporting greats.”

Celebrities and dignitaries have been queuing up to lend their support with Lawrence Dallaglio, Darren Gough, Steve Finn and Froch amongst those to have already signed the flag.
