Cricketer leads Ashes fans on Sydney Harbour Bridge walk

Cricketer leads Ashes fans on Sydney Harbour Bridge walk
15 Nov 2013

Ahead of the first Ashes test next week, former cricket star Brett Lee has been stoking the friendly rivalry between Australia and England.

On Thursday (14 November), the fast bowler led a group of face-painted fans representing each nation to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge for a patriotic singing session. 

'It's a privilege to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge with such passionate and patriotic fans,' Lee said.

'The energy and commitment, clearly seen here today, is vital fuel motivating the players to give their all when representing their countries.'

Climbing the iconic bridge is one of the top attractions for tourists visiting Sydney. Visitors are clipped to a safety harness and allowed to climb up the main arch to the 134m-high summit for stunning views across the harbour to the Opera House. 

Tickets cost from $198 per person (£115) and you can climb during the day, twilight or once darkness has fallen. ADNFCR-408-ID-801661068-ADNFCR
