Dan Walker introduces reaction to the announcement of the winning bids to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. England were among the frontrunners to stage the 2018 tournament, although they faced stiff competition from a Russian bid increasingly seen as the favourite. The USA and Australia were the two leading contenders to host the 2022 competition, which will take place outside of Europe. The bidding process was marred by controversy ahead of Thursday's voting, with reports of collusion between bidding nations, and two members of Fifa's executive committee suspended following corruption allegations.
