Rio Ferdinand is one of many Premier League stars to have arrived in Singapore to help teach local children about football.

Ferdinand joins Peter Crouch as well as former stars Andy Cole, David Seaman and current Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp.

The footballers will teach a group of 80 students to perfect the art of juggling, dribbling and taking a penalty at Marina Bay Sands at the south of Singapore.

Ferdinand tweeted via his official Twitter page: "Landed in Singapore!! The humidity just got real! Got a ‘Sands for Singapore’ football clinic to attend at the Shoppes at 3pm!! #CoachFerdy!"

The Sands for Singapore event helps to reach out to the local community and the football clinic allows under-privileged children a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Robbie Fowler, Peter Reid and Dwight Yorke will also be in attendance to help out, and those fans that aren’t playing have the opportunity to watch from above.

Ferdinand has been involved in a lot of charity work in his career, including setting up the Live The Dream Foundation. 

The foundation looks to nurture and develop young people from deprived communities seeking careers in sports and entertainment and was set up in 2009.
