Ice Bucket Challenge

Ferdinand was another of the countless celebrities to get involved with the latest craze, doing so on an open training day with Queens Park Rangers.

It's a fairly simple game; one person pours an ice cold bucket of water over their heads and nominate others to do it.

The scheme was initially launched in America to raise money for the ALS Association - a non-profit organisation that raises money and promotes awareness for Lou Gehrig disease.

Among some of the names already to have completed the challenge are Robert Downey Jr, Bill Clinton, Rory McIlroy and Justin Bieber. Most of the videos vary in length and imagination from helicopter splashes to simple cool-box offloads. 

The ex-England international nominated James Corden, Drake, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lionel Messi and trey Songz.

QPR's slow start

Moving away from sodden and frozen celebrities, the sun was beating down on Loftus Road for Hull City who beat Rio Ferdinand and his teammates 1-0 at the weekend.

James Chester's header was enough for the away side as a new-look QPR defence failed to keep a clean sheet at the first time of asking. 

When Charlie Austin's penalty was brilliantly saved by Allan McGregor in the latter stages of the match, QPR seemed destined to lose the game despite creating several good chances throughout. 

It doesn't get much easier for Rangers as they are set to travel to White Hart Lane to play Tottenham Hotspur in their next Premier League. Harry Redknapp will be hoping to get his team's season off to a good start.
