The annual AFC Wimbledon Charity Mascot race has so far raised £400 for charity and it had the added bonus of an impressive win for Haydon the Womble.

It was the first time that Haydon has triumphed in a mascot race as he held off the challenges of Debra the Zebra and Macs the Monkey. Haydon claimed his success was all down to his strict training regime.

Haydon said: "My lack of a sprint finish means I'm normally caught in the final third, but a few training runs really paid off!"
